2 wavy-haired caucasians?

What fraction of offspring of two wavy-haired Caucasians would have wavy hair? Expain using a Punnett square... Can you?

Each wavy-haired Caucasian would have a Gene for curly hair, (C) and a Gene for strait hair,(S). So



The CS and SC would have wavy hair, so each offspring would have a 50% chance of having wavy hair.

Most likely half the offspring would have wavy hair, but all combinations are possible with every pregnancy.

I can, but I think you need to learn how to do it for yourself. On top of that, you can't draw a punnet square in text. Don't post your homework on the web for other people to do for you under the guise that it's a challenge to see if they can do it. You'd be amazed what you can learn if you did it yourself.

Assuming both women are dominant wavy-haired caucasians using a punnet square their offspring would all be wavy-haired it is a 4:0 ratio.
