Two cards are chosen at random without replacement from a pack of 52 playing cards if the first card chosen is an Ace what is the probability the second card chosen is also an ace
three over fifty is the answer
Hello, We know in the deck has 4 aces, and there are total 52 cards. P(choosing an ace the first pick): 4/52 or 1/13 Now, according to the text states that after picking the first card and without replacement, so now we have 3 aces left, and 51 cards left P(choosing second aces): 3/51 or 1/17. As a result, the probability the second card chosen is also an ace is 1/17. Hope it help!
