two cards are drawn in succession without replacement from a standard deck of 52 cards. what is the probability that the first card is a spade given that the second card is a club. what is the probability that the first card is a face card(jack, queen, king) given that the second card is an eight? Please help, I've gotten .064 for the first one and .018 for the second one and both are wrong. I don't know how they could be wrong.

  • probability -

    If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.

    Spade = 13/52, club = 13/(52-1)

    face = 12/52, 8 = 4/(52-1)

    I don't know how they could be wrong either. Text typos?
