# Blue eyes and green eyes

I suppose, blue eyed child also must play part in figuring out question 1. I only took it into account for figuring out question two, so my previous answer is wrong.

Spoiler for probability

Bingo.

Somehow, to me this problem seems similar to Bonanova's “Give monkey enough rope.” (Some serious untangling to perform one must.)

Hey, I resent that =). I spend some time trying to make the wording clear and lucid. There is no way this puzzle can match the sheer genius of grammatical obfuscation in 'Give monkey enough rope'.

I did not mean to imply any grammatical obfuscation in this puzzle. I meant probability obfuscation with backward refrences, like first child.

In that case, thank you, I aim to please. Nothing but the best probability obfuscation for my fellow Brainden citizens.

Spoiler for population stability

There are few interesting questions herein. (Perhaps, people who study gentics and population have some ready-made formulas.)

Won't these stable population proportions (BB:Bg:gg = 25:30:9) be reached in the very next generation?

If the initial population distribution was different, we would get a different proportion for stable population. Does that stable proportion always happen in the very first offspring generation? Why?
