5 of C = 1/52
5 = 4/52 =1/13
club = 1/4 = 13/52
jack = 4/52 =1/13
spade same as club
J of S, same as 5 of C
You only took one card. It can not be 5 and jack
five or jack 1/13 + 1/13 = 2/13
heart and jack is jack of hearts 1/52
Heart OR jack
draw Venn diagram
There are 13 hearts
There are 4 jacks, three of which are not hearts. The jack of hearts is the intersection of the sets, careful not to count it twice.
So out of the 52 cards
13 are Hearts and 3 more are jacks that are not hearts
total = 13+3 = 16
so
16/52 = 4/13
heart or jack = 1/4 + 3/52
