# 4) Refer to problem 3. Calculate the probability of every possible outcome (hint: you need to make nine calculations (you already made three of them in problem 3)).  Problem 3:3) Mendelian genetics predict 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.

3) Mendelian genetics predict 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

Binomial distribution:

Here, number of puppies in a litter n = 8. There are only two possible outcomes, black or brown. Therefore, this follows binomial distribution.

The probabili...
