In order to express Hardy Weinberg principle mathematically , suppose p represents the frequency of the dominant allele in gene pool and q represents the frequency of recessive allele.

## Why is the Hardy-Weinberg equation useful?

is incredibly useful because it describes mathematically the genetic product of a population in which all individuals are equally likely to survive and to produce surviving offspring. Specifically, it calculates the genotype frequencies that will be observed in a population that is not evolving.

## What does P and Q mean in quadratic equation?

x-intercepts p and q represent the x-intercepts. The x-intercepts are the points where the graph crosses the x-axis. The x-intercepts are at x = -3 and x = 1. It doesnt matter which x-intercept is p and which is q
