    1. You possess a 'standard deck of playing cards' (n = 52). First,

    (a) identify the probability of selecting a spade, club, or heart. Second,
    (b) calculate the probability of selecting a spade, heart, diamond, or face card. Identify
    (c) the probability of selecting (in sequence) a two and a red jack (assuming that the first card was replaced), and
    (d) the probability of selecting (in sequence) a heart and a red four (assuming that the first card was not replaced).

    Still using one 'standard deck of playing cards' (n = 52), consider Event A [a club or a king] and Event B [a red card]. Calculate
    (e) the probability of Event A. Next,
    (f) identify the probability of Event B, and
    (g) calculate the probability of Event A or Event B. Now,
    (h) identify the probability of Event A, given that Event B occurred, i.e., P(A|B). Finally,
    (i) using two separate 'standard decks of playing cards,' compute the probability of Event A occurring in the first deck and Event B occurring in the second deck.
