Derrick Berry Written Assignment 3 The probability that you are dealt pocket aces is 1/221, or 0.00452 to three significant digits. If you studied either section 4.5 and 4.6 or section 4.8, verify that probability. Ace #1: is a chance of 4 out of 52 or P(Ace) = 4/52 = 0.07690 Ace # 2: is a chance of 3 out of 51 or P(Ace 2) = 3/51 = 0.05882 P(Ace and Ace 2) = P(Ace) x P(Ace 2) = 0.07690 x 0.05882 = .00452 Using the result from part (a), obtain the probability that you are dealt “pocket kings”. King #1: is a chance of 4 out of 52 or P(King) = 4/52 = 0.07690 King # 2: is a chance of 3 out of 51 or P(King 2) = 3/51 = 0.05882 P(King and King2) = P(King) x P(King 2) = 0.07690 x 0.05882 = .00452 Using the result from part (a) and your analysis in part (b), find the probability that you
