In a population of lizards, the allele that causes red eyes (R) is dominant, while the allele that causes green eyes is recessive (r). If 72% of the lizards have red eyes, what is the frequency of the dominant allele?

    first of all this should go into the biology section. but that said; it's a long time i did something like this and have forgotten, maybe if you had a clue how to solve it, i could have some memory refresh on that... or you could also just go ahead to the biology section to ask there :)

    i think the answer is pretty straight forward though... don't you think? dominant allele causes red eyes, 72% have red eyes, hence frequency of dominant allele = 72% = 0.72..... makes sense?
