Hi,

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

Thanks,

Ryan

I would like to know what is the probability that I would draw a heart in the first 5 cards
Expert:  Ryan replied 10 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?
