    If you're crossing BbTt x BbTt, the proportion of bbT_ would be 3/16.

    When doing a dihybrid cross, 9/16 are dominant for both traits, 3/16 are dominant for one and recessive for the other, 3/16 are the other way around, and 1/16 is recessive for both.

    This is a made up problem, since human eye color is not controlled by just 2 alleles.
