Two cards are drawn without replacement from an ordinary deck of 52 playing cards. What is the probability that the second card is a number card, if the first card was a queen? The face cards are King, Queen, Jack. The number cards are ace – 10.

    so there are 12 face cards and 40 number cards.
    since the first card was a queen, the 40 facecards are still in the remaining 51 cards
    prob = 40/51
