1. Suppose that a dominant allele (P) codes for a polka-dot tail and a recessive allele (p) codes for a solid colored tail. In addition, suppose that a dominant allele (L) codes for long eyelashes and a recessive allele (l) codes for short eyelashes. If two individuals heterozygous for both traits (tail color and eyelash length) mate, what's the probability of the phenotypic combinations of the offspring?

Suppose that a dominant allele (P) codes for a polka-dot tail and a recessive allele (p) codes for a solid colored tail. In addition, suppose that a dominant allele (L) codes for long eyelashes and a recessive allele (l) codes for short eyelashes. If two individuals heterozygous for both traits (tail color and eyelash length) mate, the probability of the phenotypic combinations of the offspring are: PPLL (1/4); PpLl (1/2); ppll (1/4).

Suppose that a dominant allele (P) codes for a polka-dot tail and a recessive allele (p) codes for a solid colored tail. If two heterozygous individuals with polka-dot tails mate, the probability of the phenotype and genotype combinations of the offspring is 75 percent chance of a polka-dot tail and 25 percent chance of a solid colored tail (25 percent PP; 50 percent Pp; 25 percent pp).

Solution: The probability of PP genotype is 1/4 is 25%. The probability of Pp genotype is 1/2 or 50%, and the probability of pp genotype is 1/2 or 25%. The probability of the polka-dot tail is 3/4 or 75%,

leaving the probability of the solid color tail 1/4 or 25%.

Solution: The probability of PP genotype is 1/4 is 25%. The probability of Pp genotype is 1/2 or 50%, and the probability of pp genotype is 1/2 or 25%. The probability of the polka-dot tail is 3/4 or 75%,

leaving the probability of the solid color tail 1/4 or 25%.
