Theorem: Probability of an arbitrary event under an equally likely assumption

If we assume each simple event in sample space S is as likely to occur as any other, then the probability of an arbitrary event E is S is given by

P(E)=Number of elements in E/Number of elements in S=n(E)/n(S)

For our problem, let S be the set of all two card hand out of a deck ...
