You find a population of spotted salamanders that previous researchers have determined is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. The allele that confers yellow spots (Y) is dominant The frequency of yellow-spotted salamanders in this population is 0.51 (This means 51% of the salamanders are yellow-spotted.) What is the frequency of heterozygotes (Yy) in this population? What is the frequency of homozygous dominants (YY) in this population?
