The answer is 0.071. The chances of drawing an ace in the first draw is 4/52. The chances of not drawing an ace in the second draw is 48/52. The chances of getting only one ace in the two draws can be solves using this equation: P(X=1) = (4/52) * (48/52)             = 192/2704            = 0.0710059 or 0.071 Thank you for posting your question. I hope you found what you were after. Please feel free to ask me more.
