## Homework Statement

1. 2 card are chosen from a standard 52 card deck, what is the chances of getting the sum of them to be at least 4?

aces = 1

face cards = 10

2. In a shuffled deck, what is the chances of ace of spades and ace of clubs to be adjacent?

3.Someone flips 3 coins and rolls a fair die, what is the chances that the number of heads will equal the number showing on the die?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

1. Well i guess if the first card is not a ace or 2, then it desnt matter what the second card is, because then the sum of any combination will be (3+) + (1+) >= 4

so then its 44/52 chance of not getting any of the aces or 2's.

2.

Since the ace of clubs can be anywhere, that leaves 51 cards left, so then there is a 1/51+1/51 = 2/51 chance of the ace of spades to be beside the ace of clubs.
