Page 254: Problem 14.10 should read: In a given population, only the A and B alleles are present in the blood; there are no individuals with type O blood or with O alleles in this particular population. A sample of 200 people is taken from this population and their blood type is determined. If the population is at Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, what is the frequency of A allele and what are the expected numbers of people in the sample with type AB and type B blood?
Page 402: The sentence "Notice that when we construct the vector of function values f we have to use the ./ operator..." should read "Notice that when we construct the vector of function values g we have to use the ./ operator..."
