More Chi-Squared questions!

1) Investigate results of crossing plants with red and yellow flowers. Allele for red flowers is
dominant. Carry out the cross and obtain 18 plants, all have red flowers.
Then cross two of the F1 and obtain 17 red flowered plants and 3 yellow flowered plants. Find the
ratio that would be expected and carry out chi-squared test at the 5% significance level to
determine if results accord with predictions.

2) Tomatoes: Stem colour and hairness


A – purple a – green B – hairy b – smooth
In a cross between a heterozygous plant with purple, hairy stems and one with green, smooth
stems, the following offspring were obtained:
40 purple hairy, 37 green smooth, 18 purple smooth and 25 green hairy.
i) What numbers would you have expected from this cross?
ii) Is this a significant deviation from the expected results?
iii) Can you suggest a different hypothesis to explain the results?
