Biology College question

In 40% of cases of retinoblastoma, a predisposition to developing the cancer is inherited (as in the pedigrees above). However, in 60% of cases of retinoblastoma, the cancer occurs sporadically (the first case in a family) and children of these patients do not necessarily inherit a predisposition for retinoblastoma. What is the same about these two situations? What is different?
