What is the probability of drawing a heart followed by a black number (2-10) card from a standard deck of cards?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
There are 52 cards in a deck of cards, 13 of which are hearts.
black colored cards are either spades or flowers. Therefore, the possible black numbers that can be drawn are;
8 cards of spades and 8 cards of flowers. this gives a total of 16 i.e 8 spade cards + 8 flower cards
the probability of drawing a heart first is found by; 13/52
the probability of drawing a black numbered card is;16/51
therefore multiplying the two probabilities;13/52 x 16/51 =208/2652
which can be further simplified to;52/663
