Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wouldnt it be 3/26 ? because theres either red or black cards which means 26 cards are red 26 are black. but they're asking for 3 different cards. im just assuming

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2adajia is right on the 3 part, but it's still talking about the chances of picking those three from the deck of 52 cards.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know the 3 out of 26 part and the 3 out of 52 but do you know if there is something else?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Lol thats ok adajia. And well I would assume that the answer would be 3/52 but sometimes probability is confusing so let me look in my notes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do you mean but something else? i mean you can split it 7 different ways if you base it off of the faces meaning king queen jack spaid heart etc i agree with kobeni the answer is 3/52

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Half of the cards in the deck are red. So the probability of picking out one red card is 1/2. I think if you wanted to see the prob. for picking three consecutive cards like that, you would multiply the denominator by 3. So I actually think its 1/8 now.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know if the "without replacement" has any effect on the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no they just mean like if you take a card out and then place it back into the deck so no it shouldnt have any effect on it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Oh wait argh. I multiplied the probabilities 26/52, 25/52, and 24/52 and got 75/676. That's probably in regards to the ''w/o replacement'' because the number of red cards in the deck decreases by one each time you take one out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It'll have an effect on it because if you put the card back, that's another 1/52 chance that you'll pick up that red card.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2aww its seriously alright lol. I had a lot of trouble with probability but I'm glad i finally figured it out c:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait...so wouldn't it be 26/52, 25/51, and 24/50 since cards are being taken out of the deck as well?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If I was the type f person to curse, this is when I would do it. That's right lol... you'll want to multiply all three of those fractions to get the *true* answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.026/52, 25/51, and 24/50 Okay multiplying these all together I got 15600/132600 = 2/17 And don't worry about it. You're fine. :)
