In class on January 20, we did an exercise in which we simulated the production of gametes from an individual with genotype *AaBb*), and generated offspring by mating with another *AaBb* individual. We obtained the following numbers of offspring. (NOTE: this is after correcting the i-clicker data for duplicate offspring.)

**Genotypic Class Observed number**

*A-B-* 43

*A-bb* 14

*aaB-* 9

*aabb* 7

TOTAL: 73

Part A

What is the EXPECTED number of each genotypic class under the hypothesis that the two genes show equal segregation of alleles and independent assortment?

Part B

The Chi-square test statistic on these data would have how many degrees of freedom?
