You choose three cards at random from a standard deck of cards, without replacement. What is the probability that the first card is clubs, the second card is hearts, and the third card is also clubs?

P ( first card is clubs ) = 13/52 = 1/4

P ( second is hearts) = 13/51

P( third is also clubs) = 12/50 = 6/25

So....the total probability is

1/4 * 13/51 * 6 /25 = 78 / 5100 = 13 / 850
