Michelle draws a card from a standard deck of 52 cards. She replaces the card and draws a second card. What is the probability that she draws a Heart and then a Spade?
The probability of a heart is 13/52 and for a spade = 13/52. The probability of both events occurring is found by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
13/52 * 13/52 = ?
