Question 16 Probability Exercise 13.1

A card is drawn at random from a pack of 52 cards. Find the probability that the card drawn is a jack, queen or a king.

Answer:

Solution:

Probability refers to a result's chance or potential. It describes the likelihood of a specific occurrence.

Given: A card is drawn at random from a pack of 52 cards

Required to Find: Probability of the following

Total number of cards in a pack = 52

A jack, queen or a king are 3 from each 4 suits.

So, the total number of a jack, queen and king are 12.

We know that, Probability = Number of favourable outcomes/ Total number of outcomes

Thus, the probability of getting a jack, queen or a king is 12/52 = 3/13
