**Mary**, Sunday, February 21, 2010 at 12:56pmThere are 12 face cards plus four cards with a "5" on them for a total of 16 cards out of 52. So you end up with 16 chances of 52 that you will draw a face card or a card with a five on it, or 16/52 chance. You should reduce the answer to a 4/13 chance.
