In a population of 100 rock pink plants, 84 individuals have red lowers while 16 have white flowers. Assume that white petals are inherited as a recessive trait (a) and red petals as a dominant trait (A). What are the frequencies p and q? In the next generation, what will be the equilibrium genotypic frequencies?
Please show all work and provide a thorough explanation.

According to Hardyweinberg theory:
p + q = 1 ------ (1)
p2 + 2pq + q2 = 1 (where p = dominant allele, q = recessive ...
In this solution the Hardy-Weinberg Theorem is applied to solve the given genetics problem.
