Christy,
Are you asking for a 52 card deck of cards, what are the odds of drawing a spade or a heart?

Rmz,
Yes sorry about that

PsyDAG,
There are 13 spades and 13 hearts in the 52card deck (13/52 and 13/52, respectively).
For "eitheror" probabilities, you add the probabilities of the individual events.
I hope this helps.
