Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1taking 1 card at a time P(say Spade) = 1/4 ( because there are 13 spades out of 52) 2nd card P(spade) = 12/51 3rd card = 11/50 so can you tell me the next 2 probabilities of getting a spade?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right now as all these probabilities are independent to get P(5 spades) you multiply them all together
