Thank you for using the site. I'll be happy to help you with your math question.

I'm with you so far. Is there more to this problem? I'm not yet clear on what is being asked for.

Thanks,

I would like to know what is the probability that I would draw a heart in the first 5 cards
Expert:  Ryan replied 2 months ago.

Ok. For the purposes of your question does "draw a heart in the first five cards" mean any number of hearts drawn, or specifically one and only one heart?
