    Playing cards-again :-)

    You are dealt a hand of three cards, one at a time.. Find the probabilities:
    a. The first heart you get is the third heart dealt.
    b. Your cards are all red
    c. You get no spades.
    d. You have at least one ace.

    it's the same logic as before, use the product of probabilities to obtain joint probability.

    and for picking up at least one from 3 trials, use sum of probabilities.
