One card is drawn at random from a well-shuffled deck of 52 cards. Find the probability that the card drawn is (i) a 4 (ii) a queen (iii) a black card.

(i) Total number cards in a deck = 52

Number of 4’s in a deck of cards = 4

Probability P() =

Probability of drawing a 4 numbered card from the deck of cards P(4)

= = =

(ii) Total number cards in a deck = 52

Number of Queens in a deck of cards = 4

Probability P() =

Probability of drawing a queen from the deck of cards P(queen)

= = =

(iii) Total number cards in a deck = 52

Number of black cards in a deck of cards = 26 (13 spades and 13 clubs)

Probability P() =

Probability of drawing a black card from the deck of cards P(black)

= = =
