Homework Help: Probability

Posted by Hannah on Tuesday, November 27, 2007 at 12:18am.

Three cards are drawn in succession (without replacement) from a 52-card deck. Find the probability that: If the first is an ace, then the other two are aces.

I know this has to do with conditional probability, like "What is the probability that the second and third cards picked are aces given that the first card picked is definitely an ace".

What I did was just multiply (3/51) x (2/50). Is this correct?
