I understand that phenotype and genotype ratios are fairly similar, i just have an extremely confusing question and cannot find the answer anywhere. ex of problem: BB Bb Bb Bb. which means that they are all black . . . so how do i put that in a ratio? i know that you can put that in a percent but my paper asks for a ratio and i have no idea how to do it.
you need something to compare it to for it to be a ratio, since there's only one type your phenotype "ratio" would just be one, I wouldn't get too hung up on that answer, write an explanation if you feel like your grader might give you trouble about it. However, your genotype ratios would definitely be a ratio.
Edit, there's no crossing that would give you BB, Bb X3. So you might have made a mistake somewhere.

Okay, I have a little project for class and I have two questions to ask you:
1. You said that if all the outcomes are the same (I have a tetrahybrid cross -256 squares- and it is a cross between true-breeding parents. EEWWHHCC and eewwhhcc) I would put Mendel's law of informity or whatever for the genotype ratio? Or would I simply say 'none?' Also, would the phenotype ratio be 1:0 or is my thinking process for this all messed up? xD
2. For the F1 generation cross there is a cross of EeWwHhCc and EeWwHhCc. I did the whole Punnett square (which, by the way, took FOREVER. D: ) but, how am I to determine the genotype and phenotype ratio of it? Also, how do I find the 'expected numbers of organisms of each type in the F2 generation?'
***I'm really sorry if I was supposed to start a new thread...I just figured it would be best to post it here, I'm not too sure how your forum rolls. o_o
*********I need this done by tonight, so any response would be greatly appreciated! Please and thankies! ;3
1. that's fairly simple, you just get one genotype (and thus one phenotype)ů
2. you have to know, which trait is dominant/recessive and which codominant than just look how many of each genotype is there and group those genotypes, which have the same phenotype
Cis or trans? That's what matters.
