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!
