A genetic problem .... im not sure if im doing this correct.A black stallion of unknown ancestry was mated to anumber of red mares with purebred pedigrees. These matings produced 20 red offspring and 25 black offspring. Test using the chisquare method indicating whether the hypothesis is acceptable.
 Okay .. I used a punnet square firstly ... I figured that the black stallion would b dominant so that would be BB, and the red mares since they are purebred, they would be bb. Bb x bb getting a 1:1 ratio (total 2). I saw that the total progeny would be 45, so I got ..... (1/2)*(45) =22.5, then i used the chi square formula ... (Observedexpected)^2/expected... [(2022.5)^2/ 22.5] + [(2522.5)^2/ 22.5)]  I'm not sure if my steps are correct at all so can someone please see if I am doing this correctlY? Thanks soo much!
Seems Ok up to the end, but you haven't finish the job. You have to calculate the table coefficient and compare it to your chi sqaure table to tell you if your difference from expeted is significant or not.

So is the ratio 1:1? That's the part I'm mainly not sure of.
That would be your Null hypothesis. A simple gene with a dominant recessive pattern. Your Chi square will tell you if you have to reject or accept it.
