A genetic experiment involving peas yielded one sample of offspring consisting of 455 green peas and 176 yellow peas. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that under the same circumstances, 24 % of offspring peas will be yellow. Identify the null hypothesis, alternative hypothesis, test statistic, P-value, conclusion about the null hypothesis, and final conclusion that addresses the original claim. Use the P-value method and the normal distribution as an approximation to the binomial distribution.
