You draw five cards from a standard deck of 52 cards. P(heart) = 4/5 (fraction). What type of probability is illustrated and why?

Theoretical; the result is based on the number of possible outcomes**

Theoretical; the result is found by repeating an experiment

Experimental; the result is based on the number of possible outcomes

Experimental; the result is found by repeating an experiment**

The ones with ** are the ones I think the answer could be. Please help, thanks. :-)

  1. Your given example illustrates a case where there is a definite number of ways for things to happen, thus it is a theoretical probability situation, you had that one.

    But you said:
    You draw five cards from a standard deck of 52 cards. P(heart) = 4/5 (fraction)

    Did you mean there is at least one heart in your selection?
    That would be close to 4/5 but not equal to 4/5

    Prob. of at least one heart when drawing 5 cards from a full deck
    = 1 - prob(no hearts at all)
    = 1 - C(39,5) / C(52,5)
    = .7785
