• math -

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

a) 26/52 * (26-1)/(52-1) = ?

b) Either-or probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities. The probability above for red plus the same probability for black.

c) 4/52 * 4/(52-1) = ?

Use a similar thinking process for d.
