  4. Let p = frequency of one allele; q = frequency of another allele.
  5. The total number of alleles for the locus = _________ of the population.
  6. Expressed as a formula: _____________________________
  7. p2 + 2pq + q2 = 1
  8. Hardy-Weinberg shows mathematically that a population will remain stable
