Question 19 Probability Exercise 13.1

A card is drawn at random from a pack of 52 cards. Find the probability that the card drawn is neither an ace nor 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

Total number of ace cards are 4 and king are 4

Total number of cards that are an ace or a king = 4 + 4 = 8

So, the total number of cards that are neither an ace nor a king is 52 – 8 = 44

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

Thus, the probability of getting cards which are neither an ace nor a king = 44/52 = 11/13
