One card is selected at random from an ordinary set of 52
cards. Find the probability of each of the following events:
b. A spade and a 5 are drawn.
d. A jack is not drawn

Well, you are only drawing one card. Therefore if it is a spade and a five it is the five of spades so 1/52

48/52 of the cards are not Jacks.

thank you. i understand how you got 48/52 since there are 4 jacks but do i need to simplify the answer?

• math -

yes, simplify
