**Formula:**`p^2 + 2pq + q^2`

## Introduction to Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium

The Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium equation calculates the genetic variation in a population that is not experiencing evolutionary change. It is represented by the equation ** p^2 + 2pq + q^2**, where

**represents the frequency of one allele (dominant), and**

*p***represents the frequency of the other allele (recessive).**

*q*## Parameter usage:

`p`

= frequency of dominant allele`q`

= frequency of recessive allele

## Output:

`value`

= genetic variation in the population

## Data validation:

The numbers should be between 0 and 1.

## Summary:

This equation provides a method for determining the genetic variation in a population under the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium assumption.
