3) Mendelian genetics predicts that in Labrador retrievers (a type of dog), 75% should have black color if both parents are heterozygous (the rest are brown). You mate two parents and get a litter of 8 puppies. Calculate the following:

a) The probability of 6 black puppies.

b) The probability of 4 brown puppies.

c) The probability that 25% of the puppies will be brown.

Step 1

Probability that the dog is of black colour = 0.75

Probability that the dog is of brown colour = 0.25

N = 8

Applying Binomial Probability Distribution

Step 2

a)

Probability of 6 black puppies

Black puppies p = 0.75

Brown puppies q = 0.25

Probability of getting 6 black puppies

Step 3

b) Probability of getting 4 brown puppies

It ...
