I understand the Hardy-Weinberg principle, and I’ve done multiple word problems on it, but I’m just stumped on this one. I’ve got a big feeling that I’m really over thinking this because it looks fairly simple. I truly do not know how to go about this.
"In a diploid grasshopper population of 50 individuals, if there are 40 recessive alleles, what is the frequency of dominant alleles? (Be sure to show your work.)
In the same grasshopper population, what would you expect to be the genotypic frequencies in the next generation if it were in Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium? (Show your work.)"
