2. Recall: A 52card deck has four suits (spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs) and thirteen
values (Ace, 2, 3,.
..,10, Jack, Queen, and King). Spades and clubs are black; hearts and
diamonds are red.
Consider the experiment of choosing ten cards without replacement.
For draw
i
=
1, 2,.
.., 10, let
Q
i
denote that a queen is chosen, let
K
i
denote that a king is chosen,
and let
A
i
denote that an ace is chosen.
