1-50.

Stacie says to Cory, “Reach into this standard deck of playing cards and pull out a card at random. If it is the queen of hearts, I’ll pay you $\5.00$.” (Note: A standard deck of playing cards contains $52$ cards, each of which is unique.)

1. What is the probability that Cory gets Stacie’s $\5.00$?

There is only one card in a deck that is a queen of hearts.

Probability that Cory gets Stacie’s  $\5.00=\frac{1}{52}$

2. What is the probability that Stacie keeps her $\5.00$?

How many cards are there besides the queen of hearts?
That's how many chances, out of $52$, that Stacie keeps her $\5.00$.

Probability that Stacie keeps her $\5.00=1-\frac{1}{52}=\frac{51}{52}$
