Biology: Genetics

In guinea pig, short hair (L) is dominant to long hair (l) and the heterozygous condition for yellow coat (Y) and white coat (y) gives cream coat. A short haired guinea pig is bred to long haired white guinea pig and one of the offspring is a long haired baby guinea pig.
a. What is the probability that an offspring will be recessive for both gene pairs?
b. What is the probability that a short haired white guinea pig will be produced?
