One card is drawn from a well-shuffled deck of 52 cards. Find the probability of getting the jack of hearts.


Given:

One card is drawn from a well shuffled deck of 52 cards.

To do:

We have to find the probability of getting a jack of hearts.

Solution:

A pack of cards contains 52 cards of four suits and two colours red and black.

Four suits are named as spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs.

Each suit consists of one ace, one king, one queen, one jack and 9 other cards numbered from 2 to 10.

This implies,

The total number of possible outcomes $n=52$.

Number of cards that are jack of hearts $=1$

Total number of favourable outcomes $=1$.

We know that,

Probability of an event $=\frac{Number\ of\ favourable\ outcomes}{Total\ number\ of\ possible\ outcomes}$

Therefore,

Probability of getting a jack of hearts $=\frac{1}{52}$

The probability of getting a jack of hearts is $\frac{1}{52}$.
