I have the following questions. Part a- the answer is 4/51 as all the jacks are still in the pack. My question is why the answer to part b not the same as all the kings are still in the pack? Instead, the answer is 1/13, why?
A pair of cards are drawn from a standard pack of 52 cards. (a) What is the probability that the second card is a jack, given that the first card was an ace?
(b) What is the probability that the second card is a king, given instead that the first card was a spade?
In general, how should you approach these kind of questions? I find them difficult to visualise for harder problems..?
