The individuals with extreme variations of a trait.

This is a Hardy Weindburg situation P represents the percentage of the population that has a dominant allele... now there can only be two alleles one is dominant and one is recessive... q is the recessive allele This means that p+q=1 and so q has to be equal to 0.32 If you do the square of p (p^2) then that gives you the number of people who are homozygous dominant If you do the square of q (q^2) then that gives you the number of people who are homozygous recessive If you do 2*(p*q) then that will give you the number of people who are heterozygous Hope this helps...

Ther is a 50% chance you will have two p alleles

It can be represented as a ratio of two integers.
