Following Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, knowledge of the allele frequencies can give us information about a good estimate of the phenotype frequencies. If the dominant allele is at 0.6, the recessive allele would be 0.4.
What is the frequency of the white flowers when the frequency of the purple allele (P) is 0.6?
