In a genetics experiment on peas, one sample of offspring contained 419 green peas and 42 yellow peas. Based on those results, estimate the probability of getting an offspring pea that is green. Is the result reasonably close to the value of 3/4 that was expected? Type an integer or decimal rounded to three decimal places as needed
