    A Hardy Weinberg carnation problem

    Carnations exhibit "blended inheritance" (co-dominant or intermediate inheritance). 2 alleles for color R and R' produce red and white flowers, respectively, when in homozygous condition. When an individual possesses bothe alleles (RR') their phenotype is pink. If the allele frequency for R is 0.23, how many pink individuals would you expect in a population of 2500, if you assume the population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibruim. Help is given.

    Solution Preview

    Hardy Weinberg equilibrium questions revolve around the following equation:

    p^2 + 2pq + q^2 = 1

    where p is the frequency of one allele and q is the frequency of the other. ...
