Which two we inherit determines our blood type. Here is a table that shows what our bloed type is for esch combination of two aleles Alleles inherited Blood type A and A A and B A and O s and B AB O and O We inverit each of a parems two alieles with probebility O.5.We inherit indrgendently from our mother and father Emily and Michael both have alees O and o (a) What biood types can their children have (Select all that apply (b) What is the probablity that their next crild tas each of these blood types?
