Question

From a pack of 52 playing cards, all cards whose numbers are multiples of 3 are removed. A card is now drawn at random. What is the probability that the card drawn is

An even numbered red card?

Solution

No. of total cards=52

cards removed of 4 colours of multiples of 3

=3,6,9=4xx3=12

Remaining cards =52-12=40

An even number red cards=2,4,8,10 card =2xx4=8

⇒ Probability P(E)=8/40=1/5
