A population sample of 300 individuals is studied for the electrophoretic mobility of an enzyme that varies according to the genotype determined by 2 alleles, E and T of a single gene. The results are 7 individuals with genotype EE, 106 with genotype ET, and 187 with genotype TT. What are the allele frequencies of E and T, and what are the expected numbers of the 3 genotypes if random mating is assumed?
