Probability of
10.3 A mother and father each have blood type AB. Find the probability that their child has
the following blood type.
(a) AB
(b) A
(c) B
10.4 Suppose that a family has five children. Find the probability that there are four girls and
one boy.
10.5 Suppose that a family has five children. Find the probability that there are exactly three
girls and two boys.
10.6 Using only four genes denoted by (N-P-M-G), how many different gene orders are there?
10.7 Suppose that you want to plant four trees in a plot and can choose from 10 different
species. How many ways can be chosen to plant the trees in the plot?
10.8 Suppose that there are five types of toppings to put on a certain pizza. If you want to have

0.9 In plants and animals that sexually reproduce, each parent gives half of its genes to the
offspring. Somatic cells contain two unique copies of each chromosome, and the two
copies of each chromosome form a chromosome pair, or homologous chromosomes.
Diring the process of meiosis, the somatic cell will divide into gametes, or sex cells, each
of which contains only one copy of each chromosome.
(a) The common fruit fly has four different chromosomes; thus, in each somatic cell, there
ac egnt chromosomes arranged in four pairs. How many unique gametes can one
fruit fly form?
(b) Humans have 23 different chromosomes; thus, in each somatic cell, there are
46 chromosomes arranged in 23 chromosome pairs. How many unique gametes ca
one human form?
A
