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 "one-by-one" 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
