## What is the probability of getting either a king or a queen when drawing a single card from a deck of 52 cards?

Total number of king is 4 out of 52 cards. Number of favourable outcomes i.e. ‘a king or a queen’ is 4 + 4 = 8 out of 52 cards. (vii) a black face card: Cards of Spades and Clubs are black cards.

### What is the probability of drawing a king or queen or a jack from a deck of cards?

What is the probability of drawing a king or a queen? The probability of drawing a king or a queen is 2/13.

#### What is the probability of getting neither a king nor a queen?

Total number of cards that are king and those that are queen in the pack of playing cards = 4 + 4 = 8. Therefore, there are 52 − 8 = 44 cards that are neither a king nor a queen.

**What is the probability of getting a jack given the first draw was a queen?**

Because you replace the card between your draws. So the odds of getting a king on the first draw, then a queen on the second, is 1/13 times 1/13, which is to say 1/169. Similarly the odds of getting a queen on the first draw then a king on the second is also 1/169.

**What is the probability of getting the jack of hearts?**

Probability of getting jack of hearts is 1/52.

## What is the probability of getting either a heart or a jack when drawing a single card from a deck of 52 cards?

The P(Jack) is 4/52 or 0.0769. P(Heart) is 13/52 or 0.2500. Since there is only one Jack of Hearts, P(Jack and Heart) is 1/52 or 0.0192. Hope this helps!

### What is the probability of being dealt a king Queen and Jack in any order?

It depends whether the deck has 52 or 54 (full deck, plus two Jokers) cards. If 52 then you have a 12 in 52 chance of drawing a K, Q, or J. This can be simplified to 3 in 13.

#### What is the probability of drawing a queen or a king?

There are 4 queen (Q) & 4 king (K) cards in a standard deck of 52 cards . Therefore,required probability of drawing a queen or a king = P (QUK) = P (Q) + P (K) = 4/52 + 4/52 = 2/13 . There are 52 cards in a deck. There are 13 different cards with 4 different suits.

**What is the probability of a jack in a deck of cards?**

Find the probability of: In a playing card there are 52 cards. 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.

**What is the probability of getting a k in a deck?**

This is basic probability. In a deck of 52 cards there are four Kings, Four Queens, and four jacks. The probability that you would get one of these cards is 12 /52. It depends whether the deck has 52 or 54 (full deck, plus two Jokers) cards. If 52 then you have a 12 in 52 chance of drawing a K, Q, or J. This can be simplified to 3 in 13.

## 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.
