# Two cards are drawn from a pack of 52 cards. Find the probability that both are black. - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Two cards are drawn from a pack of 52 cards. Find the probability that both are black.

#### Solution

Two cards can be drawn from a pack of 52 cards in 52C2 ways.
∴ n(S) = 52C2

Let A be the event that both the cards drawn are black.
The pack of 52 cards contains 26 black cards.
∴ 2 cards can be drawn from them in 26C2 ways
∴ n(A) = 26C2

∴ P(A) = ("n"("A"))/("n"("S"))

= (""^26"C"_2)/(""^52"C"_2)
