What is the probability of drawing a spade followed by an even number card? The answer is 5/52 but how did we get that? what are the steps?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

All the possible cards is 52,

Spades are 13, so probability of a spade is 13/52

We have thirteen types of cards arranged from ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,j,q,k, probability of an even which is a 2,4,6,8,10 is 5/13

total probability is therefore 13/52 *5/13 = 5/52
