Question #72765

You are studying a population of 5000 winged Fargles. There are 3200 green Fargles and 1800 purple Fargles. Calculate p and q for the population

Expert's answer

If green is dominant:

q= sqrt (1800/5000)=sqrt(0.36)=0.6

p=1 - 0.6=0.4

If purple is dominant:

q= sqrt (3200/5000)=sqrt(0.64)=0.8

p=1 - 0.8=0.2

q= sqrt (1800/5000)=sqrt(0.36)=0.6

p=1 - 0.6=0.4

If purple is dominant:

q= sqrt (3200/5000)=sqrt(0.64)=0.8

p=1 - 0.8=0.2
