probability,a 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?

Re: probability,a card is drawn...

The probability that the first card drawn is an ace is , since there are four aces in the deck. The probability that the second card drawn is an ace is , since there are 3 aces left but there are still 52 cards. Hence, the probability both cards drawn are aces is .
