    the sample space is 52x51 and the outcome is 4x4x3

    Since we've to observe in sequence, we've to do it separately for the first card and for the second card and then, multiply them. For the first card, the sample space is 52 and there will be 4cards of same type and different suite. You can select one out of them in 4ways. For the second card, as you already picked up a card, you will have 51 sample spaces now and as you have to pick up a card of same type as the first and you now have only 3 such cards, you can select it in 3ways. So,the probability of first card x probability of second card = 4/52 x 3/51 As there are 13 types of cards, this can be done in 13ways depending on the first type you might pick. So, you have to multiply the answer you got with 13 and the final answer is 13 x 4/52 x 3/51 So, the outcome is 13x4x3(not 4x4x3...sorry) and sample space is 52x51

    @UnkleRhaukus above answer doesn't take into account that order does matter

    I think we have to use permuatation. 13*(4 P 2)

    If you pick up the two cards at the same time, then the answer is 13*(4 C 2) You cannot use permutation here, instead use combination

    My first solution was based on picking the cards separately

    what if order actually didn't matter; how would we change it?
