a) Justify that each cross fertilization of the red-and white flowered plants is a bernouli trial , let X be the number of red flowered plants in 5 pairs of the cross-fertilized

b) Is X a binomial random variable? if so , identify n and p

c) Determine the probability that there will be no red flowered plant

d) Determine the probability that there will be at least one red flowered plant
