1-118.

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 $$5.00$." What is the probability that Cory gets Stacie's$$5.00$? What is the probability that Stacie keeps her $$5.00$? Justify your answers. (Note: A standard deck of playing cards contains $52$ cards, each of which is unique.) Homework Help ✎ There is only one card in a deck that is a queen of hearts. Probability that Cory gets Stacie's$$5.00$ is

$\frac{1}{52}$

Probability that Stacie keeps her \$$5.00$ is

$1-\frac{1}{52}=\frac{51}{52}$
