  1. The probability of getting an ace is 4/52 and getting the ace of spades is 1/52, the probability of the second ace for both is 3/51.

    The probability of both or all events occurring (having 2 aces) is found by multiplying the probability of the individual events.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
