Well, let's check.

#### Explanation:

Assuming Hardy-Weinberg conditions are met, we will use the

**Where:**

If a homozygous dominant genotype is

Using

we will find the frequency of the dominant allele, meaning we will solve for

If we have

the dominant allele frequency turns out to be **0.68** or **68%**
