OK, Jen. Now it's your turn to get away from the computer and start doing your own thinking.

We've shown you how to find probabilities. Now, use your brain, pencil and paper, and calculator to find these answers.

We'll be glad to check them.

the second one is 2/12?
and the last one is 4/12?

1. ·an eight given the card is a not a face card.

This question is confusing. I suspect that this answer is 4/40

2. Clubs are black.

3. No.

Buy or borrow a deck of cards and study them carefully.

2. 4/12?
3. 8/12??
