A standard deck of cards contains 52 cards. Of these, 12 are face cards (kings, queens, and jacks), 13 are hearts, 13 are clubs, and 3 of these are both hearts and face cards. A card is drawn. What is the probability that the card is either a jack of hearts or a queen of clubs?
Jack of hearts = 1/52
Queen of clubs = 1/52
The either-or probability is found by adding the individual probabilities.
