FREE Expert Solution

Hardy-Weinberg Equation:

p2+2pq+q2=1


where: p2 = frequency of homozygous dominant (NAA/N)

2pq = frequency of heterozygous (NAa/N)

q2 = frequency of homozygous recessive (Naa/N)


= frequency of dominant allele

q = frequency of recessive allele


Given: after the mutation event

NAA = 9          NAa = 1          N = 10
