Two cards are drawn without replacement from a standard deck of 52 playing cards... PROBABILITY!?
Two cards are drawn without replacement from a standard deck of 52 playing cards. Find the probability that the first is an odd number card (aces are considered odd as the have a value of 1 or 11) and the second is a face card.
D. (20/52)(4/51) + (4/52)(20/51)
no. the face cards are not numbers.

there are 20 odd numbered cards & 12 face cards in a pack
since it is specified that the 1st card drawn is an odd numbered card,
the order is fixed, and reqd. probability
= [20/52][12/51] => [ A ] <=== ANS

Since you have already pulled a red card (heart), that leaves the following scenario 26 black cards out of 51 cards remaining. P = 26/51

Edit: Are the Jacks and Kings considered odd numbered?
