Question

A pink-flowering plant is of genotype RW. If two such plants are crossed, we obtain a red plant (RR) with probability .25, a pink plant (RW or WR) with probability .50, and a white plant (WW) with probability .25, as shown in the table. What is the expected number of W genes present in a crossing of this type?

$\begin{matrix} \text{Number of W Genes Present} & \text{}\\ \text{}{x_{i}} & \text{}{p_{i}}\\ \text{0} & \text{.25}\\ \text{1} & \text{.50}\\ \text{2} & \text{.25}\\ \end{matrix}$
