For a population in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, the relative frequencies of genotypes can be individually computed based on the allele frequencies for the trait. Conversely, the relative frequencies of the alleles can be computed from the individual frequencies of the genotypes.
What is the number of dominant alleles in a population of 100 individuals with the following genotypes: 30 BB, 60Bb, 10bb?
