there are 8 cards, five are black and three are white.The question is " Find the probability of icking a black than white card. HELP PLEASE!!!!

It would help if you proofread your questions before you posted them. Do you mean "then"? Also, do you mean without replacing the black card? I will assume so.

Black card = 5/8

White card = 3/7

The probability of all/both events occurring is found by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
