Since no other details were mentioned, this can only be solved if we assume that it follows the Hardy-Weinberg model. The frequencies of alleles follow the equation:
p + q = 1, where
A population has 36% recessive homozygotes. What would the expected frequency of the homozygous dominant genotype be?
