A card is drawn from an ordinary deck of 52 cards, and the result is recorded on paper. The card is then returned to the deck and another card is drawn and recorded. Find the probability that the following occurs:
a) the first card is a diamond
b) the second card is a diamond
c) both cards are diamonds
d) neither card is a diamond
a) 13/52 = ?
b) 13/52 = ?
c) If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
d) one card not a diamond = (52-13)/52. Take it from here.
