Good mornign folks. I have sought out this forum in hopes to end a continued arguement here in teh office. Below I will describe the situation. If you have time or interest in providing some directionit would be greatly appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

25 card deck. 25 different cards. Shuffle then cut then show the top card. Do this twice. What is the probability of showing the same card twice?

It seems liek a simple 1/25 given that the card is defined and that it is merely 1 of 25. The question runs in two stages. A) the object card is unknown B) after teh first showing the object card is known and is only 1/25.

Thank you in advance folks and enjoy the day,
