Question:

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

(i) heart

(ii) queen

(iii) clubs.

Solution:

Given: 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

(i) Heart

(ii) Queen

(iii) Clubs

After removing the king, queen and the jack of clubs from the pack of 52 playing cards

Total number of cards left: (i) Cards which are heart

Total number of heart cards is We know that PROBABILITY = Hence probability of getting a heart card is equal to (ii) Cards which are queen

Total number of queen cards is From this 4 queen cards one queen of club is taken out.

Hence total number of queen cards left is We know that PROBABILITY = Hence probability of getting an queen card (iii) Cards which are clubs

Total number of club cards is The king, queen and jack of clubs are removed

Hence total number of club cards left is We know that PROBABILITY = Hence probability of getting a club card is equal to
