The genetic population consists of a large number of alleles that are of 2 types, Type A and Type a. It is knows that 70% of alleles in the population are of type A. If 2 alleles are picked out at random, assuming independence, find the probability that a. Both are of type A b. One is A and the other is a c. Both are type a 5. The probability a person contracts a certain type of influenza is 0.2. Past experience has revealed that a person who gets the influenza does not recover 0.5% of the time.
