A Card is Drawn at Random from a Well-shuffled Pack of 52 Cards. Find the Probability of Getting a Queen Or a Jack. - Mathematics

Short Note

A card is drawn at random from a well-shuffled pack of 52 cards. Find the probability of getting a queen or a jack.

Solution

Number of queens or jacks = 4 + 4 = 8

∴  P(getting a queen or a jack) ="Number of favourable outcomes"/"Number of all possible outcomes" = 8/52 = 2/13

Thus, the probability of getting a queen or a jack is 2/13
