# Hybridization Experiment In one of Mendel’s experiments with plants, 1064 offspring consisted of 787 plants with long stems. According to Mendel’s theory, 3/4 of the offspring plants should have long stems. Assuming that Mendel’s proportion of 3/4 is correct, find the probability of getting 787 or fewer plants with long stems among 1064 offspring plants. Based on the result, is 787 offspring plants with long stems significantly low? What does the result imply about Mendel’s claimed proportion of 3/4?
