If in a given population number of individuals with dominant phenotype are 60%  what will be the number of heterozygote in that population?

  1. Around 23%
  2. Around 46%
  3. 26%
  4. 25%

dominant phenotype means 2pq+p2

Rest is same q2= 40/100

p+q=1 calculate p from there

Now carriers will be 2pq
