#### Question

A card is drawn from a well-shuffled deck of 52 playing cards. The probability that the card will not be an ace is

• A. 1/13

• B. 1/4

• C. 12/13

• D.3/4

#### Solution

There are 4 ace cards in a deck of 52 playing cards.

∴ Number of non-ace cards = 52 − 4 = 48

Let E be the event of drawing a non-ace card.

Total number of outcomes = 52

Number of favourable outcomes = 48

P(E)=text{Number of favourable outcomes}/text{ Total Number of outcomes}=48/52=12/13
