The punnett square is generally a method in determining the genes that the offspring would inherit from their parents. The Punnett square for the two individuals with genotypes Dd and dd can be expressed as:
d Dd dd
d Dd dd
Dd = heterozygous dominant or individuals with no dimples
dd = recessive trait or individuals with dimples
Genotype Dd (phenotype: no dimples) = 50%
Genotype dd (phenotype: with dimples) = 50%
The probability for the offspring to have dimples is 50%
