The probability of drawing the first ace is 4/52. Without replacement, the probability of drawing the second ace is 3/51. (Do you understand why?) The probability of events all happening is found by multiplying the individual probabilities.

The probability of drawing the first "honour card" is 20/52. Use the same methodology as in the above problem.

I hope this helps.
