Problem 1:- How did the phrase “dumb jock” come to be? (This is a rhetorical question.) The phrase reflects two characteristics, intelligence and athletic prowess. Let us suppose that above average intelligence occurs in 25 out 100 children and superior athletic prowess occurs in 1 out 50 children. Using the rules of multiplication or addition, calculate the odds on a person having above average intelligence AND athletic prowess.

Problem 2: - Cystic fibrosis is a disease caused by a recessive allele, and so it appears only as a homozygous recessive genotype. Two parents without cystic fibrosis have a child who does have the disease. Explain what happened and include a Punnett square in your answer. (You can use a word-processor table with three columns and three rows to draw the Punnett square, and watch out for automatic capitalization. If your word-processor cannot draw a table, then describe what is in each cell of the table.)
