Use a pedigree to find the probability of recessive genetic disorder being passed on?

The pedigree tracks a recessive genetic disorder through a family. Female #1 and her partner decide to consult a genetic therapist about the possibility of them passing on the genetic disorder. Her partner does not have the disorder, but his father had the disorder, while his mother’s family had no history of the disorder. Play the role of the gene therapist and calculate the probability they could produce an offspring with the genetic disorder. (be thorough and mention all possibilities) (circle labeled 1 represents female #1)
