# From a Deck of 52 Cards, All the Face Cards Are Removed and Then the Remaining Cards Are Shuffled. Now One Card is Drawn from the Remaining Deck. Find the Probability that the Card Drawn Is: a Black Card - Mathematics

From a deck of 52 cards, all the face cards are removed and then the remaining cards are shuffled. Now one card is drawn from the remaining deck. Find the probability that the card drawn is:

a black card

#### Solution

There are 12 face cards in a deck

Therefore, possible number of outcomes =52-12=40

Number of favourable outcome for black =26 cards- 6 face  cards=20

P(a black card)=20/40=1/2
