Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What would be the probability of getting a card between 2 and 9 in the first pick?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No...it's saying that it's greater than 2 and less than 9. 3,4,5,6,7,8 are the numbers that qualify for me :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So we have to get the ones in between?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since there are 3,4,5,6,7,8 in four suits, the probability would be: \( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {4 \times 6 \over 52} }\) For the first pick.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Simplifying further: \( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {24 \over 52} = {12 \over 26} = {6 \over 13} }\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now we've picked the first. We have 1 card LESS in the deck because we haven't replaced the cards.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So this time the denominator of the probability would become 51. The numerator will also get one less because we have assumed that we have picked one card which is 3,4,5,6,7 or 8.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There are 23 cards left that we want. 51 total cards left. \( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {23 \over 51} }\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay...so since we had not replaced, we have to subtract 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now if we want two things to happen at the same time, we shall multiply the probabilities. \( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {13 \over 26} \times {23 \over 51}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We have to subtract 1 from both numerator and denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait. so after we multiply, we have to simplify further too?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oops.. I meant this: \( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {6 \over 13} \times {23 \over 51}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Multiply the fractions. The fractions are in their simplest forms so when we'll multiply it'd be in the simplest form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, i did that. Okay, so 46/221 is final answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How did you get that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {2 \over 13} \times {23 \over 17} }\)
