(b) What is the probability that the next child of the Harrison family will be a boy (giving them 14 boys in a row)? (Assume that the probability of having a boy or a girl is the same.)

This is an independent event, so the probability that the next child will be a boy is 0.5.  50% chance regardless of how many boys came before.
