2-74.

What is the probability of drawing each of the following cards from a standard playing deck? Remember that a standard deck of cards includes: $52$ cards of four suits. Two suits are black: clubs and spades; two are red: hearts and diamonds. Each suit has $13$ cards: $2$ through $10$, Ace, Jack, Queen, and King.

1. P(Jack)

Find the probability by making a fraction where the total number of possibilities is the denominator and the numerator is the number of desired possibilities. Now try to do the problem.

$\frac{\text{Number of Jacks}}{52 \text{ cards}}$

$\frac{4}{52}$

With probabilities, fractions are frequently not simplified.
