What are the expected numbers of red-flowered plants, pink-flowered plants and white-flowered plants if the population is in Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium? Give your answers, to two places of decimals.

thanka!

0.64, 0.32, 0.04

The expected amount of plants in that collective sample of $n=182+64+16=262$ would be:

$0.64*262,0.32*262,0.04*262$
