Calculate these values for the succeeding generation

If a recessive lethal allele has a frequency of 0.050 in newly formed zygotes in one generation, and the locus is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, what will be the allele frequency and the genotype frequencies at this locus at the beginning of the next generation?
Answer: q=0.048; p2=0.9071, 2pq=0.0907, q2=0.0023

Calculate these values for the succeeding generation. If the lethal allele arises by mutation at a rate of 10-6 per gamete, what will be its frequency at equilibrium?
