I am raising a populationof Halloween cats - they have either black tails or orange tails. tail color is determined by a single gene with only two alleles: B is for a black tail and black is dominant; b represents the allele for the recessive trait, an orange tail.In a population of 200 cats, 32 of the cats have an orange tail. Assuming Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, what is the frequency of homozygous recessive individuals in the population?

In rabbits, the allele of the gene for short hair (S) is dominant over the allele for long hair (s) and the black hair (B) is dominant over brown hair (b). The hair color and hair length genes are on separate pairs of chromosomes. For a cross between a SsBb and a ssBb rabbit, what are the expected genotypes and phenotypes in the offspring?
