###### 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 **F**allele 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)).
