Karen, Gavin, Nasra, and Ali each have a deck of playing cards.

Each student randomly draws a card from the deck. Find the probability of each event:

a) Each student draws a club.

b) Karen draws a red card, Gavin draws a king, Nasra draws a black card, and Ali draws the

2 of clubs.

c) Karen draws a heart, Gavin draws a heart, Nasra draws a face card, and Ali draws an ace.

I didn't know what form your teacher wanted the answer in so: the percentages are in red, and the fractions are in blue.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a) Well, there are __52 cards in a deck__, and there are four suits so: 52/4 = __13 cards in each suit__. There are four students so: __13/52 x 13/52 x 13/52 x 13/52__...

And you can just multiply fractions straight across which gets us: __13*13*13*13 = 28561__ for the numerator and __52*52*52*52 = 7311616__ for the denominator, or __28561 / 7311616.__ This would be 28561/7311616 = 0.00390625*100 = __0.39% percent chance__ (to the nearest hundredth.) Or 1/256.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

b) This one has so many different probabilities, I will work in steps:

Karen - There are 52 cards in a deck, two red suits (each with 13 cards) so that is ** 26/52**.

Gavin - There is only one king per suit and 4 suits so there are only 4 kings in a deck, ** 4/52**.

Nasra - This one is pretty much the same as Karen, there are two black suits so __26/52.__

Ali - This one is fairly simple as there is only one 2 of clubs per deck, **1/52.**

Multiply the fractions: 26*4*26*1 = __2704__ for the numerator, and 52*52*52*52 = __7311616__ for the denominator or __ 2704/7311616.__ To make this into a percentage: 2704/7311616 = 0.0003698224852071*100 =

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

c) Again, I will work in parts...

Karen - There are 13 cards in a suit so **13/52.**

Gavin - Same as Karen... __13/52.__

Nasra - There are 3 face cards per suit (Jack, Queen, King) so 3*4 = **12/52.**

Ali - There is one ace per suit so **4/52.**

Multiply the fractions: 13*13*12*4 = __8112__ for the numerator, and 52*52*52*52 = __7311616__ for the denominator or ** 8112/7311616.** To make this into a percentage: 8112/7311616 = 0.0011094674556213*100 =

*Hoped this helped you understand and that you don't have to turn it in late!
