**MathMate**, Friday, June 14, 2013 at 6:45amWhen a problem requires "at least one", it is often easier to find the probability of getting none and subtracting the probability from 1 (complement).

Here, probability of not getting a king at a draw is 48/52, or 12/13.

Probability of getting no king at 4 consecutive draws (with replacement) is (12/13)^4.

The complement is 1-(12/13)^4, which is the probability of getting at least one king.
