 Question 468122: Essay; show all work. Last fall, a gardener planted 95 iris bulbs. She found that only 80 of the bulbs bloomed in the spring. Find the empirical probability that an iris bulb of this type will bloom. Give answer as a fraction in lowest terms. How many of the bulbs should she plant next fall if she would like at least 91 to bloom? Answer by Theo(3458)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!80/95 = .842105263 that's the empirical probability that the iris bulbs will bloom. based on this probability, if she would like at least 91 to bloom, she should plant at least 91/.842105263 = 108.90625 bulbs. this should be rounded up to 91. she plants 91 and .842105263 * 91 of them bloom. this would come out to be 91.78947365 bulb will bloom, which rounds down to 91.
