suppose that you draw 2 cards from a standard deck. How many possible draws are there? what is the probability that you drew a pair of 6's? what are the odds against drawing a pair of 6's?

    the number of cards is the number of possibilities, and you multiply the possibilities

    52*51 = total possibilities

    so there are 2652 possibilites right...and how can i find out the possibility of drawing a pair of 6's?

    no, the "6" in this case is just a place holder, not a possibility

    so then there would only be 4 possibility because there are only 4 cards of 6's right

    there are 4, then when you draw one, there are 3 to select. So the total possible ways to get your desired outcome is 4*3 = 12 to make this into a probability, divide by the total possibilities (52*51 from before)

    and how would i find the "odd" against drawing a pair of 6's? what does it mean by od

    *odd

    odds means probability. I don't know if odds against is different than odds for something, if it is, then you may have to subtract the answer from 2652/2652 or 1.

    it is either (4*3)/(52*51) = 1/221 or 220/221 if odds against means the odds that you WON'T get a pair of sixes. What do you think it means?
