There is a 36-card deck. Two cards are taken without repetition at random. What is the probability of having black and red cards?

Stolyar,

I guess we need to know how many are RED and how many are BLACK cards in a deck of 36 cards. Assuming there are 18 each of them , then the probability of drawing 1R and 1B card is

18/36 X 18/35 = 9/35

'WITHOUT REPETITION' suggests that, this is a case of finding probability of DEPENDENT events.

There are 18 red and 18 black
