Weegy: In the Hardy-Weinberg equation, p^2 + 2pq + q^2 = 1, the term q^2 represents the proportion of the population with the recessive phenotype.
The proportion of this population with the recessive phenotype is 30/100=0,30 That is q^2. [ The frequency of the recessive allele, q, is just the square root of 0,30so q^2 = 0.76 ] User: What happens when a population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium?
The gene pool stays the same. ... (More)
