One card is selected at random from an ordinary set of 52 cards. Find the probability of each of the following events:
a spade and a 5 are drawn.
a jack is not drawn.
Thanks for any help with this.

  • math -

    (1) The five of spades is one card out of 52. Hence the answer is 1/52

    (2) There are 4 jacks in a deck.
    Hence: 4/52 = 1/13

    (3) 48 cards of the deck are not jacks. What do you think the answer is?
