The Question is:
In the game of bridge, each of 4 players is dealt 13 cards. If a certain player has no aces, find the probability that that person's partner has:
a.)no aces
b.)at least 2 aces

Now, we have done problems like this in class with 2 players and that was really complicated because we had to do combinations and such and I really do not know how to set up this problem when there are 4 players.

Container 1 has 10 items, 3 of which are defective. Container 2 has 6 items, 2 of which are defective. If one item is drawn independently from each container:
Find the probability distribution for X defined as the number of defective items drawn (Hint: You have to find P(X=0), P(X=1) and P(X=2). You may have to use both multi
