The Bennett family believes that they have a special genetic makeup because there are 5 children in the family and all of them are girls. Perform a simulation of 100 families with 5 children. Assume the probability that an individual child is a girl is 50%. Determine the percent of families in which all 5 children are girls. Decide whether having 5 girls in a family of 5 children is probable, somewhat unusual, or highly improbable.
