Im having a hard time figuring out how to calculate this using the allele frequency. I know that r+R= 1 but which would make R=.3 but that is not the answer. How fo I calculate this? help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose-3 15. In a population of plants, RR is the red flowers, Rr pink and rr white.

Step 1

In this given population, the single locus allelic frequency is given as r = 0.7. Therefore according to Hardy Weinburg principle allelic frequency of R = 0.3.

In order to determine...
