7. 13 points MIntroStat9 4.E.041 My Notes Some traits of plants and animals depend on inheritance of a single gene. This is called Mendelian inheritance, after Gregor Mendel (1822-1884) Each of us has an ABO blood type, which describes whether two characteristics, called A and B, are present. Every one of us has two blood type alleles (gene forms), one inherited from our mother and one from our father. Each of these alleles can be A, B, or O. Which two we inherit determines our blood type. Here is a table that shows what our blood type is for each combination of two alleles. Alleles inherited A and A A and B A and O B and B B and C O and O Blood type AB We inherit each of a parents two alleles with probability 0.5. We inherit independently from our mother and father. Anna has alleles B and O. Nathan has alleles A and O. (a) What is the probability that a child of these parents has blood type O? (b) If Anna and Nathan have three children, what is the probability that all three have blood type O? (Round your answer to three decimal places.) What is the probability that the first two children have blood type O and the next one does not? (Round your answer to three decimal places.) Submit Answer Save Progress Practice Another Version
