Galactosemia Is A Recessive Human Disease That Is Treatable By Restricting Lacto

Galactosemia is a recessive human disease that is treatable by restricting lactose and glucose in the diet. Susan Smithers and her husband are both heterozygous for the galactosemia gene.

If the couple has four children, what is the probability that the first two will have galactosemia and the second two will not?

ANSWER: (1/4 x 1/4 x 3/4 x 3/4)6 = 54/256
