# Random Selection A card is chosen at random from a standard 52-card deck of playing cards. What is the probability that the card is(a) a face card?(b) not a face card?(c) a black face card?

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The probability that the card chosen is a face card when a card is chosen at random from a standard 52-card deck of playing cards.

Explanation

Given information:

The provided information that is, a card is chosen at random from a standard 52-card deck of playing cards.

Formula used:

Definition of Probability of an event x:

P(x)=Favrable eventTotal possible event=n(x)n(S)

Where n(S) is the number of equally likely event in the sample space.

Calculation:

Consider the provided information that is, a card is chosen at random from a standard 52-card deck of playing cards.

Now, use the definition of probability of an event x:

P(x)=Favrable eventTotal possible event=n(x)n(S)

Where n(S) is the number of equally likely event in the sample space

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The probability that the card chosen is not a face card when a card is chosen at random from a standard 52-card deck of playing cards.

(c)

To determine

To calculate: The probability that the card chosen is a black face card when a card is chosen at random from a standard 52-card deck of playing cards.
