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
Also, when you say P ( first card is clubs) does that mean the probability of the first card being clubs?
