# What is the probability of selecting a black card from a deck of cards?

There are 26 black cards and 12 face cards in total. However, of those 26 black cards, there are 6 face cards. That means there are 26+12-6 = 32 cards in total that are either a black card or a face card, but not both. That means the answer to the question is 32/52 = 8/13.

## What is the probability of choosing a black card?

However, The probability of getting a black card or an ace [which we may denote as P(black or ace)] is not P(black) + P(ace) since the former is 28/52 (there are 26 black cards and 2 red aces) while the latter is 26/52 + 4/52.

## What is the probability of getting a black card from a deck of 52 cards?

There are 26 black cards in the deck. So, probability of getting a black card from a pack of 52 cards is 1/2.

## What is the probability of drawing a black card from a pack of cards?

No. of black face cards= 6. So, Probability of black queen = 6 52 = 3 26 .

## What is the probability of selecting a black card or a queen?

If you split the deck into black and red cards, you'll have 26 of each. In the black deck, there's a full set of each rank in Clubs and Spades, so there's 2 Queens. The probability of drawing a Queen is therefore 2/26 = 1/13. Hope this helps, and if you have further questions, please comment.

## What is the probability of selecting a black card or 6 From 52 playing cards?

Required Probability =28/52=7/13. Alternative Method 2 : P(Black Card) = P(BC)=26/52=1/2. P(6 or Six) = P(Six)=4/52=1/13.
