    In rats, the following genotypes of two independently assorting autosomal genes determine coat color.
    For the following cross, what fraction of the offspring would you expect to have each genotype?
    AAbbCC x aaBBcc

    A_B_C- gray
    A_B_cc albino
    A_bbC_ yellow
    A_bbcc albino
    aaB_C_ Black
    aaB_cc albino
