Post subject:  Probability 
Is the following statement correctly formed? If so, how do you solve it? Two cards are drawn from a standard deck and not replaced. Find P (K and a heart). Thanks! Kretias

Assuming that a standard deck is a 52card deck, then it is left to understand what probability we are asked to calculate. kretias wrote: Find P (K and a heart). P stands for probability and "(K and a heart)" stands for an event. But what event is it?Is it "One of them is King and another one is a heart"? Is it "The first one is King and the second one is a heart"? I would say it is the first one as "Two cards are drawn from" without "onebyone" implies that they are drawn together. Then use the following formulas to solve:  the basic definition of discrete probability  the formula for taking two elements out of 52 without a replacement  calculate the number of favorable outcomes
