A flower shop wishes to add the valuable Waimea orchid to its product list. They purchase a large shipment of bulbs from a supplier in Kauai. It is established by Mendelian theory that the predominant colors in the Waimea orchid (blue, red, violet, orange) will occur with the ratio of 6:4:3:2. When the first 60 Waimea orchid bulbs bloom, the predominant colors are 27 blue, 10 red, 17 violet, 6 orange. The florists are concerned that these bulbs are not Waimea orchids, but a similar appearing (and more common, less valuable) hybrid. What hypothesis test can be used to test this? Conduct the test at α = 0.05 using Minitab. Interpret your results and state your conclusion in terms of the data.
