such beauty, grace and intelligence ... something like: 10200/132600
You beauty, you've graced us with your intelligence and googled up an answer, Tryagain, and again you've triumphed.
Naturally, TTH's clinquant riposte takes the biscuit.
Dutchy, cross- swords outside crosswords, what an ineluctably ineffable blessing.
I found this:
There are 4 possible outcomes yielding an Ace on the third draw without replacement:
a) Ace and Ace (first two cards) then Ace (third card) = 4/52 x 3/51 x 2/50 (24/132600) or
b) Non-ace and Ace then Ace = 48/52 x 4/51 x 3/50 (576/132600) or
c) Ace and Non-ace then Ace = 4/52 x 48/51 x 3/50 (576/132600) or
d) Non-ace and Non-ace then Ace = 48/52 x 47/51 x 4/50 (9024/132600)
Then it's just a+b+c+d
(24+576+576+9024) / 132600
=0.0769 (about 7.7%)
or more simply 4/52 if you're in a hurry because the oolongteasup
imagine my merriment
the relationship between the probability of an event's occurrence and the probability that it will NOT occur
what an odd question
