A card that is not a king and not a spade is drawn.

I know there are 52 cards in a deck and there are 4 kings to a deck. And 13 spades in a deck. So I added the two together which would make it 17/52= 33% is this correct?

**Reiny**, Monday, March 15, 2010 at 5:18pmahh, but you counted the "king of spades" twice.

there are only 12 cards that are NOT either kings or spades.

So you would be interested in drawing any of the other 40 cards

Prob(not a king and not a spade) = 40/52 = 10/13
