# In how many ways can 2 kings be drawn from a deck of 52 cards?

hmmm,

a math question?... there are several variables involved.

if drawing ONLY 2 cards there is a 1 in 13 chance on the first king and a 1 in 17 on the second king, however it is a 1 in 221 chance of drawing 2 kings back to back.

if the q is really "how many ways" then you multiply those chances by the 4 different kings in the deck it might be higher because the KD is a 1 in 52 chance and the KS is a 1 in 51 chance. hmmm

so a KS followed by KD would be more like 1 chance in about 2600

**Answer**

There are 6 ways in which a pair of Kings can be pulled from a deck of cards:

Heart/Club, Heart/Spade, Heart/Diamond

Club/Spade, Club/Diamond

Spade/Diamond.

### What is the probability of drawing a red ten or a black ace?

The answer depends on
whether the card(s) are drawn from a normal deck of playing
