Two cards are drawn without replacement from a standard deck of 52 playing cards. What is the probability of choosing a king for the second card drawn, if the first card, drawn without replacement, was a king?

There are then three kings remaning on a deck of 51 cards. The probability is then 3/51=5.88%

You have two cards being drawn. There are a total of 4 kings. 4*3 / 52*51 is 1/ 13*17 = 1/221... and you may have read the question wrong, it's not the probability after, you must calculate the 'whole' probability. Ask if you have any questions.
