Question: 1 the himalayan colour pattern in rabbits is controlled by...

Question details

1) The Himalayan colour pattern in rabbits is controlled by a single locus with three alleles; F for full colour, H for Himlalayan and A for albino. The Fallele is dominant over the H and A alleles while the H allele is dominant over the A allele. If the number of individuals with the Himalayan colour pattern represent 35% of the population and the albinos represent 17% of the population, what is the frequency of the F allele? (rounded to 3 decimal places)

Your Answer: should be 0.279

Please guide me thought the steps to get the correct answer . I posted this question many times, but no one provided me the correct answer .Please do provide me correct answer this time.

Hint for solving the question : You need to assume random mating to do this, there isn't any other way. The frequency of the F allele is 1 - f(H) - f(A). f(A) = SQRT(f(AA)) and f (H) = SQRT(f(HH)+f(HA)+f(AA)) - SQRT(f(AA)).
