  1. What you want is the probability of getting 1, 2 or 3 hermaphrodite plants. However, what is the total number of plants? If there are only three, then the answer = 1 (certainty).

    If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
