cards. Find the probability of each of the following events:

d. A jack is not drawn

would the answer be:48/52 since you subtract 4 from 52 for the four jacks and simplify to get 12/13 or do you say 4/52 and simplify to get 1/13

**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, April 21, 2010 at 11:04amYou want to know probability the Jack will NOT be drawn = 12/13

1/13 = probability Jack will be drawn.

A student claims that if a fair coin is tossed and comes

up heads 5 times in a row, then, according to the law

of averages, the probability of tails on the next toss

is greater than the probability of heads. What is your

reply?

No matter what comes up or how often you get heads, the chance for each individual throw is always the same -- 1 chance out of 2.
