(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two cards are drawn from a standard deck with replacement. A=first card is an ace. B=second card is an ace. Show that A and B are independent

2. Relevant equations

P(A and B)=P(A given B)/P(B)

P(A given B)=P(A)

3. The attempt at a solution

P(A)=4/52

P(B) =4/52

P(A and B)=[(4/52)(4/52)]/(4/52)=(4/52)=P(A)

So the question I'm having is how to find P(A and B)?

Am I correct that P(A and B)=(4/52)(4/52)?
