If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.

4/52 * 4/51 = ?

Either-or probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities.

But it can be A,K or K,A, so multiply the above answer by 2.
