    Each letter in the word CRAFT is written on seperate slilp of paper& placed in hat. A letter is chosen at random and is not put back. What is the probability that R is chosen first and A is chosen second?

    Have twenty-five postings, by now you should understand that this is not a homework service. Therefore, you need to either post some of your work on a problem or explain what you do not understand about the question.
