    there are 4 suites of 13 cards each , so the probability of getting two cards in each suit is 2/13 there are four suits ,so the probability is 2\13*4 = 8\13 -(use calculator to make it to decimals !!)

    I'm not getting the question :( The two cards, are they supposed to be both kings or both queens or one king and one queen?

    Well, there are 52 cards in a deck and 8 of them are Kings and Queens. So the probability of one random draw is 8/52. Assuming you draw one, there are 7/51 remaining, so you just need to multiply that out to get the answer. |dw:1341587716616:dw| ... by my calculations, about 2.11%

    are you supposed to get one of each card..one king and one queen?

    you can look at it this way \(\frac{4}{52}\) for the first card and \(\frac{4}{51}\) for the second card but the order we pick them doesn't matter so the answer is \[2\cdot\frac{4}{52}\cdot\frac{4}{51}\]

    The way I see it, it's simply: 8/52 * 4/51

    if you choose the cards from the 8 (4K and 4Q) you might pick up 2 kings or 2 queens, but you only want one of each.

    pick from the 8...then don't pick a matching card...hence only 4 left to choose from

    Right, for the first card, a king OR a queen is a good outcome. However, assuming you pull one of those, for the second card, only one of those would be a good outcome.

    see we've drawn 1 card, now 7 are left, so it would be 7/51

    but by doing that you could get a matching pair...2 kings or 2 queens

    fine, suppose that on drawing first card, we've got a queen, so we'll exclude queen and now we'll take 4 kings.. am i right?

    if we take 4 cards for 2nd turn, will it not be 49 in the denominator? 4/48

    @Hesan no the experiment is drawing 2 cards from 52....so it is 52 then 51 as above

    the second will always be /51 if we draw 2 cards?

    because you pick one of the 52 cards...there are only 51 cards remaining
