Being able to calculate an offspring's theoretical genotype is critical in genetic sciences. We calculate the theoretical genotype and phenotype of fruit fly offspring. Using the product rule, we determine the probability for each trait and then for each genotype. In conclusion, we calculate 64 different genotypes that are supposed to be possible, but only 8 phenotypes are possible.
