## What is the probability that a card drawn at random from a deck of cards will be an ace?

The odds of drawing an ace from this deck are 4/52≈8\%.

## What is the probability that the card drawn is a 2 of spade?

(i) ‘2’ of spades: Number of favourable outcomes i.e. ‘2’ of spades is 1 out of 52 cards. Number of favourable outcomes i.e. ‘a jack’ is 4 out of 52 cards. Number of favourable outcomes i.e. ‘a king of red colour’ is 2 out of 52 cards.

**What is the probability that the card drawn is a two or a spade?**

Hence for drawing a card from a deck, each outcome has probability 1/52. The probability of an event is the sum of the probabilities of the outcomes in the event, hence the probability of drawing a spade is 13/52 = 1/4, and the probability of drawing a king is 4/52 = 1/13.

### What is the probability that the card drawn is a heart or a nine?

4/13

### How many cards are drawn from a deck of cards?

From a standard deck of cards, one card is drawn. What is the probability that the card is black and a jack? P(Black and Jack) P(Black) = 26/52 or ½ , P(Jack) is 4/52 or 1/13 so P(Black and Jack) = ½ * 1/13 = 1/26 A standard deck of cards is shuffled and one card is drawn.

**What is the probability of getting a kind card in blackjack?**

Let A be the event of drawing a king card. There are 4 king cards in total. So, the probability of getting a kind card is 1/13. A card is drawn at random from a well shuffled pack of 52 cards. Find the probability that the drawn card is not king.

## What is the probability of getting a card of diamond?

(iv) a card of diamond. Number of favourable outcomes i.e. ‘a card of diamond’ is 13 out of 52 cards. Therefore, probability of getting ‘a card of diamond’ Number of favorable outcomes P(D) = Total number of possible outcome = 13/52 = 1/4 (v) a king or a queen. Total number of king is 4 out of 52 cards.

## What is the number of favourable outcomes in a deck of cards?

Number of favourable outcomes i.e. ‘a jack’ is 4 out of 52 cards. Number of favourable outcomes i.e. ‘a king of red colour’ is 2 out of 52 cards. Number of favourable outcomes i.e. ‘a card of diamond’ is 13 out of 52 cards. Total number of king is 4 out of 52 cards.
