What is the probability of drawing a red card and a spade in two draws without replacing the card?

The probability of drawing a red card and a spade in two cards is the probability of drawing a red card multiplied by the probability of drawing a spade, multiplied by 2 (as it doesn't matter which way around they are drawn). The probability of drawing a spade is 1/13 as there are 4 spades and 52 cards. The probability of drawing a red card after this is 26/51 if the spade was black, and 25/51 if the spade was red. This averages at 51/102 Multiply these probabilities together and then multiply by two and we get 51/663 which can be simplified to 1/13
