And 40% of beetles are green.

Using this information calculate the following:

-The percentage of butterflies in the population that are heterozygous

-The frequency of homozygous dominant individuals

A. The percentage of butterflies in the population that are heterozygous.

.4 is the frequency of white (bb) butterflies. This is q^{2}taking the square root of .4 gives you q = .63

1-.63 = .37; this is p

2pq = .47 (number of heterozygotes)

B. The frequency of homozygous dominant individuals. p^{2} = .14
