In a standard deck there are 13 hearts and 4 aces. However one the hearts is an ace. So we're talking 13+4=17 cards, but then subtract one (16) for the ace of hearts that would be repeated if counting the hearts and aces separately.

So 16/52 is the probability. This can be reduced to 4/13.

People deserve good life time and loans or commercial loan can make it better. Because freedom bases on money state.
