COUNTING AND PROBABILITY (I Have No Clue)?

A standard deck of playing cards has 52 cards. These cards are divided into suits as shown in the table below. Connie is playing a game of cards with her friends. Connie starts the game by drawing one card from the deck, and then drawing a second card. What is the probability of Connie drawing two clubs? State the answer as fraction reduced to lowest terms and also state whether the events are independent or dependent.

    What you want is P(club AND club) = p(club1) and p(club2|club1) = 13/52 * 12/51 = 1/4*12/51 = 3/51  ANS.  Dependent, the probably of drawing a club on the second depends on the first draw getting a club.  If it doesn't the probability of P(club AND club) = 0.
