###### Question details

1.You sampled a population with the following numbers of individuals and genotypes:

294
*L*_{1}*L*_{1}

252
*L*_{1}*L*_{2}, and

54
*L*_{2}*L*_{2}.

How many
*L*_{2} alleles are in your sample?

2. If *p* =
0.4, then the population has more heterozygotes than homozygotes in
the population. Assume the population is in Hardy-Weinberg
equilibrium and remember to account for the frequency of both
homozygotes. True or False

3.If a population is
in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (HWE), then the frequency of the
heterozygotes can *never* be *larger* than the
combined frequency of both homozygotes. (Hint: You may want to
calculate *p*^{2}, *q*^{2} and
2*pq* for a few values of *p* [0.2, 0.5, 0.8, etc.]
to be certain of your answer.
