State whether the events described are independent or dependent and determine the probability:
A card is pulled from a well shuffled deck of standard playing cards and is not put back in the deck. A second card is drawn from the deck. What is the probability that a spade was drawn both times?
Since the card is not replaced, the second draw is dependent on the first.
The probability of both/all events is found by multiplying the individual probabilities.
13/25 * 12/51 = ?
