    a single card is drawn

    Please help me with this problem


    A single card is drawn from a standard deck of 52 cards and replaced by a joker, and then a second card is drawn. What is the probability that both cards are aces?

    What is the probability that the first card is an ace?

    Now, what is the probability that the second card is an ace?
