A) How many different classifications of pea plants are possible?

B) use a tree diagram to determine all classifications:

C0 If each characteristic is equally likely, find the probability that the pea plant will have round peas.

C0 Determint probability that the pea plant will be short, wrinkled and have yellow or purple flowers.
