Suppose you are able to observe under a microscope the total number of meiotic divisions occurring in one gonad of a given individual and to outnumber exactly the crossovers between two given loci for which that individual is dihybrid. If the frequency of these particular crossovers is 100% (that is to say that every meiosis exhibits one crossing over between the two loci you consider) you anticipate that the total percentage of recombinant gametes would be equal to:

I don't understand how to solve this.
