Expected HWE Genotype Frequencies from Observed Phenotype Data

GENES-VK2IXF

In red squirrels, the allele for bushy tail (T) is completely dominant to the allele for smooth tail (t). The following phenotypes are observed:

324 Bushy
121 Smooth

If the population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, what are the expected genotype frequencies?
