This I just don't understand this one....

Can someone give me a hint? (see Below)

The genes GHI are on a single chromosome in the following order:

The distance between genes G and H is 5 m.u. and the distance between genes H and I is 15 m.u.. What are the numbers of the various progeny (assume a total of 4000 progeny are measured) in a GHI x ghi cross when:
c.o.c. = 1.0
c.o.c. = 1.5
c.o.c. = 0.5

Did you ever find the answer to this question? I think we're in the same class! :) I'm stuck on it as well...Any additional pointers?
