What is Kim's genotype?

What is Tony's genotype?

What is the chance of having children with 6 fingers?

Please include the Punnett Square.

let FT be for normal 5fingers and toes

&ft be 4 polydactyl.

kim gtype=ft, tony=FT

f t

F Ff Ft

T Tf Tt

1 out of four

Let P stand for a polydactyl gene and N stand for a normal gene.

Kim is PN and Tony is NN. The problem is that I don't know if P is recessive or dominant. Tony can only give N genes, So the probability of a child getting the P gene is 50%. (You can put the information in a Punnett square yourself.)

Once you know which genes are dominant or recessive, you should be able to tell the chance of having 6 fingers.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
