There are 4 kings in a standard pack so the chances of drawing a king are 4/52=1/13. When a card is drawn 51 cards remain including 3 more kings, so the chances are 3/51=1/17. The combined probability is 1/221.

Probability of drawing a heart is 13/52=1/4.

Probability of drawing the King of Hearts is 1/52.
