  • Club - 13 cards
  • Heart - 13 cards
  • Spade - 13 cards
  • Diamond - 13 cards
  • No. of black cards - 26
  • No. of red cards - 26

Question: A card is drawn from a well shuffled pack of 52 cards. Find the probability of: a king of red colour.

Example

Number of favourable outcomes i.e. 'a king of red colour' is 2 out of 52 cards.

Therefore, probability of getting 'a king of red colour'

        Number of favorable outcomes
P(C) =  Total number of possible outcome

      = 2/52
      = 1/26

Question: A card is drawn from a well shuffled pack of 52 cards. Find the probability of: a jack.

Example

Number of favourable outcomes i.e. 'a jack' is 4 out of 52 cards.

Therefore, probability of getting 'a jack'

        Number of favorable outcomes
P(B) =  Total number of possible outcome

      = 4/52
      = 1/13
