This is seriously one of the easiest things in biology to understand. Ill help, but you should really learn this.

An organism needs two recessice alleles in order to have a recessive genotype, for example rr. If an organism has two dominant alleles or a heterozygous (mixed) allele, then the trait is dominant (Rr and RR). So if its phenotype is recessive, its genotype must be homozygous (same) recessive rr.

Example: Jim has blonde hair, where blonde hair is recessive and brown hair is dominant (B and b). If Jim has blonde hair then his genotype is bb.

I just got done with this so like recessive is like little lowercase letter dominant is like big uppercase letters so say  you have a parent/organism with the phenotype ss that is a recessive phenotype the genotype would be ss because well do punnet squares your teacher should have taught you that hope I helped!
