A standard deck of cards has 52 cards divided into 4 suits, each of which has 13 cards. Two of the suits ($\heartsuit$ and $\diamondsuit$, called `hearts' and `diamonds') are red, the other two ($\spadesuit$ and $\clubsuit$, called `spades' and `clubs') are black. The cards in the deck are placed in random order (usually by a process called `shuffling'). What is the probability that the first two cards drawn from the deck are both red?
