#1:heterozygous **(Gg)** for mutation reduces the transmission rate of VHS by 10%

#4: transmission rate (probability of transmission) of VHS **is **about.5% when females carrying the wild-type gene **(G)** are involved

Im not sure if its addition/subtraction or multiplication.

VHS is about .5% and being heterozygous reduces that by 10%.

So is it just: .5%(1 - .10) = .45% ?

Thanks!
