Interpret. d. Conduct a likelihood-ratio test and construct a likelihood-based 95% confidence interval. Interpret. e. Construct an exact binomial test and 95% confidence interval. Interpret. f. 95. 90, about how large a sample is needed? 8 In an experiment on chlorophyll inheritance in maize, for 1103 seedlings of self-fertilized heterozygous green plants, 854 seedlings were green and 249 were yellow. Theory predicts the ratio of green to yellow is 3:1. Test the hypothesis that 3:1 is the true ratio.
