If two heterozygous carriers of the allele marry and plan a family of five children. Key: Note mating between two heterozygotes will produce a probability (pbb) of ¾ that a particular child will be unaffected and the pbb that a particular child will be affected is ¼. Also for any child born, ½ is the pbb of being a boy and ½ pbb for being a girl. a. What is the chance that all their children will be unaffected? Multiplicative rule applies here.
