In mice, there is an allele that in the heterozygous condition, produces mice with yellow coats. Mice that are homozygous recessive for the allele have white-color coats. Homozygous dominant mice abort early or are born stillborn. If a yellow male is mated to female yellow mouse, what is the phenotypic ratio you would expect among the 15 living offspring? (Show your work below.)
