The probability that they both give an even number is (1 / 2) × (1 / 2) = 1 / 4. The probability that the both give an odd number is also 1 / 4. Thus the probability that they sum to an even number is 1 / 4 + 1 / 4 = 1 / 2. § 5.1 Problem 13: The number of hands is ( 52 5 ) . The number of hands without an ace is ( 48 5 ) . Thus the number of hands with at least one ace is ( 52 5 ) − ( 48 5 ) . The probability of getting such a hand is ( 52 5 ) − ( 48 5 ) ( 52 5 ) = 18 472 54 145 ≈ . 34 . § 5.1 Problem 24 ( a ): 1 ( 30 6 ) = 1 593 775 ≈ 1 . 68 · 10 6 .

The probability for each of these is (1 / 7) 2 , (1 / 7) 2 , (1 / 7) 2 , (2 / 7) 2 , (1 / 7) 2 and (1...
