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

Use probability trees to determine the probability of obtaining,in a deck of cards:

two red cards (A-10 hearts or diamonds) and two picture cards (any suit) in any order?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

P(1st red card)= 20/52 P (2nd red card)=19/51

P(1st picture card) = 12/52 P(2nd picture card)=11/51

How would you combine these together to get the solution? Do you use joint probability?
