🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Yeargain's class at UCF.
Assuming the population follows hardy Weinberg equilibrium, the percentage of white butterflies, 40% or 0.4, is equivalent to q2. Thus, the value of q is the square root of 0.4, which is 0.632.
Within a population of butterflies, the color brown (B) is dominant over the color white (b), and 40% of all the butterflies are white. Given this information, calculate the following:
A. The percentage of heterozygous butterflies in the population.
B. The frequency of homozygous dominant individuals.
