Since a tutor hasn't answer I'll try

A. 1st is a spade

P = S/N

Number of spades in deck = 13 = S

Number of cards = 52 = N

P = S/N = 13/52 = 1/4

B. 2nd is a face card

P = S/N

Number of face cards in deck = 13 = S

Number of cards = 52 - 1 = 51 = N

P = S/N = 13/51

P = P(A) * P(B)

P = 1/4 * 13/51 = 13/204

Not a tutor but I think it is correct

maybe a tutor will answer

number of spades = 13

number of face cards = 12

number of face OR faces = 21

P(A and B) = P(A) + P(b) - P(A or B)

= 13/52 + 12/52 - 21/52 = 4/52 = 1/13
