1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Apply the Hardy-Weinberg equation to estimate the incidence of "carriers" in the population you surveyed and in the populations you researchered. I've found out that being Lactose Intolerant is a recessive trait and that 60% of the worlds population is lactose intolerant. That means that 30% are tolerant and are either homozygous dominant or heterozygous. I was not a school for over a week and was given this as an assignment. I have never heard of this equation or even practised it before. Its due tomorrow, no exceptions because she needs marks so i cant ask for clarification. Im not looking for the answer just someone to lay out the steps involved and offer assistance. Please and Thank you! 2. Relevant equations p2 + 2pq + q2 = 1 p + q = 1 3. The attempt at a solution I dont even know where to begin.
