Expected HWE Genotype Frequencies from Observed Phenotype Data


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?
