Heterozygoous genotypic and phenotypic ratios

In peas, color (yellow or green peas) and seed texture (smooth or wrinkled ) obey Mendelaian laws. Yellow is dominant over green, and smooth is dominant over wrinkled. A pea plant heterozygous for both traits is crossed with a plant that has green wrinkled peas. What are the expected genotypic and phenotypic ratios in the offspring? Figures are estimated.

You would complete a Punnett Square to determine the expected genotypic and phenotypic ratios.

Assume Y-yellow (dominant), y-green and S-smooth (dominant), s-wrinkled

Heterozygous means it possesses two ...
