Average number of offspring




Genotype Frequency




A. What is the relative fitness of each genotype?

B. What are the genotype frequencies in the next generation?

C. What are the expected genotype frequencies in the next generation? (should equal 1)

D. What are the expected allele frequencies in the next generation?

Ok so for a I have this

A1A1 = 10/10 = 1

A1A2 = 10/10 = 1

A2A2 = 5/10 = 0.5

And for D I have

Allele frequencies:

A1   = 15/25 = 0.6

A2 = 10/25 = 0.4

Are those right? I am mostly confused on B and C. This is my best guess for C:

A1A1 = 0.4 x 0.4 = 0.16

A1A2 = 0.4 x 0.6 = 0.48

A2A2 = 0.6 x 0.6 = 0.36

Please Help!! I really need help with B.
