Question: A card is selected from a shuffled deck of cards. What is the probability that it is either a king, or a club? What is the probability that it is both a king and a club?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Answer:

There are 52 cards in a deck. Four kings and 13 clubs. So the probability of chosing a king or a club is 17/52. The probability that it's both a king and a club is 1/52 because it's only one king that's a club. Am I right?

Question:

Five cards are dealt from a shuffled deck. What is the probability that they are all of the same suit? That they are all diamonds? That they are all face cards? That the five cards are a squence in the same suit (e.g. 3,4,5,6,7 of hearts)?

Answer: I need help with the same suit and squence questions. I also need to know if I'm right about the others

Same suit? Not sure about this one

all diamonds? 5/13

face cards? 5/12 (4 kings, 4 queens, 4 jacks)

a squence in same suit? I don't know how to do this one
