# Calculate the probability of the drawn cards

A box contains 7 identical cards numbered from 0 to 6 if two cards are drawn randomly without replacement Find the probability that : $$a)$$ The two cards have even numbers $$b)$$ The first card has an odd number and the second has an even number My turn : Using the tree diagram i got $$a) = \frac{12}{42}=\frac{2}{7}$$ $$b) = \frac{12}{42}= \frac{2}{7}$$ My question : Is there other solution using the conditional probability ?

• Both answers are correct. Your question in the last statement is not very clear – Vizag Jun 9 at 14:40
• If you did $\frac{4}{7} \cdot \frac{3}{6}$ on the first problem, you have effectively used conditional probability since $\frac{3}{6}$ is the conditional probability of selecting a card with an even number on the second draw given that a card with an even number was selected on the first draw. – N.

• How did you calculate the conditional probability which is $$\frac{3}{6}$$ @N.F.Taussing – Hussien Mohamed Jun 9 at 15:45
