Imagine that a particular trait in a population is determined by two alleles A and a. In a population of 4000 individuals, the number of those of each genotype is AA=2240, Aa-1520 and aa=240.

a.   What are the genotype percentages for this generation? AA _____ Aa _____ aa ______

b.   What are the frequencies of the two alleles?

c.   Using the frequencies you calculated in the previous question, and assuming that the requirements for the Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium are met, indicate the genotype frequencies for the next generation: AA _____ Aa_____ aa_______
