Genetics: Probability In Drosophila Mutation Experiment

In a mutation experiment in drosophila, 45 mutations were detected amongst 543 males that received 2500 Roentgens (R) and 67 mutations in 649 males that received 4000R. What is the number of progeny expected in 1000 progeny of males exposed to 6000R?
