## Expert Answer

Step 1

Part (a):

A standard deck of cards contains 52 cards. Out of these, there are 26 red cards and 24 black cards.

Also, a suit of 52 cards is divided into 4 suits, 2 suits of red cards and 2 of black cards.

Each suit contains 13 cards- 3 face cards (King, Queen and Jack), 9 numbered cards (2 to 10) and one Ace.

As there are 2 suits of red cards, total number of red face cards in the bag is 3 + 3 = 6.

As there are 2 suits of black cards, total number of black cards numbered 2 to 9 in the bag is 8 + 8 = 16.

Total number of cards in the bag is 6 + 16 = 22.

Four cards are randomly drawn from the bag. The total number of ways in which 4 cards can be randomly selected from 22 cards is 22 combinations 4.

If all four cards are red, it means that 4 cards are selected from the 6 red cards and none is selected from the 16 black cards.

The probability that all four cards drawn are red is:

Step 2

Part (b):

The probability that two of the four cards drawn are red and two are black is:

Step 3

Part (c):

The probability that at least one of the cards drawn is red is the probabi...
