Q:
# You are dealt two cards successively without replacement from a standard deck of 52 playing cards. find the probability that the first card is a two and the second card is a ten. round your answer to three decimal places

Accepted Solution

A:

we have four two cards in 52 cards and four ten cards in the same playing cards

to get our first four cards we choose one from the whole set of 52 cards

but to get the next card with ten we choose them out of 51 because we took the first card with value two and we have not replaced it

this gives us

4/52*4/51=0.006

to get our first four cards we choose one from the whole set of 52 cards

but to get the next card with ten we choose them out of 51 because we took the first card with value two and we have not replaced it

this gives us

4/52*4/51=0.006
