Sum

The king, queen and jack of clubs are removed form a deck of 52 playing cards and the remaining cards are shuffled. A card is drawn from the remaining cards. Find the probability of getting a card of a face card

Solution

King, Queen and Jack of Clubs are removed from a deck of 52 playing cards and the remaining cards are shuffled and a card is drawn at random from the remaining cards

TO FIND: Probability of getting a card

a face card
Total face cards = 3 × 4 = 12
king, queen and jack of clubs are removed from the pack
So, face cards left = 12 − 3 = 9
Total cards left = 52 − 3 = 49
Probability of getting a face card  ="Number of favourable event"/"Total number of event" =9/49
