4-116.

Avery has been learning to play some new card games and is curious about the probabilities of being dealt different cards from a standard $52$-card deck. Help him figure out the probabilities listed below. 4-116 HW eTool (CPM). Homework Help ✎

1. What are $P(\text{king}), P(\text{queen}),\text{ and }P(\text{club})$?

How many kings are in a deck of cards? Queens? Clubs?

2. What is $P(\text{king or club})$? How does your answer relate to the probabilities you calculated in part (a)?

Add $P(\text{kings)and }P(\text{club})$ together.

Use the Addition Rule to eliminate P(king and club).

$P(\text{king or club) }= \frac{16}{52}$

3. What is $P(\text{king or queen})$? Again, how does your answer relate to the probabilities you calculated in part (a)?
