    Frequency of allele A (p) = 0.7 or 70%

    Frequency of allele a (q) = 0.3 or 30%

    Total number of individuals(p2 + 2pq + q2) =250

    First we have to found out, 2pq (Heterozygous genotype) = 2 x 0.7 x 0.3 = 0.42 or 42%

    in 250 populations, 42% individuals are heterozygous i.e.,

    250 x (42/100) or 250 x 0.42= 105
