Hypothetical situation, and there is no test developed for this disorder. We are trying to figure what the chaotic chance of having the disorder would be.
Say a carrier (not afflicted, but a carrier) of this disorder has a 50% chance of passing on the disorder when mated with a non-carrier.
When the second generation child then mated with a non-carrier, THEIR kids then have a 25% chance of passing it on, right?
Wouldn't that mean that the 3rd generation (when only mated to a non-carrier) is a 12.5% chance to pass it on?
4th generation would be 6.25% when mated to a non-carrier, correct?
I'm arguing with a guy that calls the carrier 100%, and his percentages are a generation behind mine...
