You draw 2 cards from a wellshuffled deck of 52 cards. After you draw the first card, you do not replace it in the deck. The probability of drawing the ace of spades on your first draw is 1/52. What is the probability of P(get queen of hearts on second draw  get ace of spades on first draw)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hope it is clear that \[P(AB)\] means you KNOW B has occurred, so you know the first card was the ace of spades, that is why you know that there is still the queen of hearts left in the deck.
