Use a Punnett square to predict what the offspring will look like?

In guinea pigs, black coat color (A) is dominant over white (a), short hair (B) is dominant over long (b), and rough coat (D) is dominant over smooth (d). Show the Punnett Square for a cross between a homozygous black, short-haired, rough coat guinea pig and a homozygous white, long-haired, smooth coat guinea pig. What do the offspring look like?
