A. A nonface card or a 7 is drawn

Probability is the good / total.

A. How many non-face or 7 cards are there? Divide it by 52. Be careful, a 7 is a non-face card.

B. How many cards are not Kings and not Spades? There are 13 Spades and 4 Kings, but 1 of those Kings is the King of Spades.

A. Ok there are 40 non-face cards and 4 seven cards, what do you mean do I add them and then divide by 52?

B. I think the answer is 4/13, is that right?
