a) 1/13

b) 0.077

c) 7.69%

Step-by-step explanation:

4 kings in a standard 52 card deck. Just find the fraction of 4/52 and then you will be able to find the percent, decimal and of course, fraction.

Here are all 52 cards

A♥ 2♥ 3♥ 4♥ 5♥ 6♥ 7♥ 8♥ 9♥ 10♥ J♥ Q♥ K♥

A♦ 2♦ 3♦ 4♦ 5♦ 6♦ 7♦ 8♦ 9♦ 10♦ J♦ Q♦ K♦

A♠ 2♠ 3♠ 4♠ 5♠ 6♠ 7♠ 8♠ 9♠ 10♠ J♠ Q♠ K♠

A♣ 2♣ 3♣ 4♣ 5♣ 6♣ 7♣ 8♣ 9♣ 10♣ J♣ Q♣ K♣

Here are all the cards that are either a club or a 5:

5♥

5♦

5♠

A♣ 2♣ 3♣ 4♣ 5♣ 6♣ 7♣ 8♣ 9♣ 10♣ J♣ Q♣ K♣

Count them. There are 16.

So the probability is 16 out of 52 or 16/52 which reduces to 4/13.

Step-by-step explanation:

Step 1: figure out the total number of cards you might pull.

Write down all the possible cards and mark the ones that you would pull out (in our case we’ve been asked the probability of a club or a seven so we’re going to mark all the clubs and all the sevens):

hearts: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, j, q, k, A

clubs: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, j, q, k, A

spades: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, j, q, k, A

diamonds: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, j, q, k, A

This totals 16 cards. *

Step 2: Count the total number of cards in the deck(s). We have one deck, so the total = 52

Step 3: Write the answer as a fraction. Divide step 3 by Step 4:

16 / 52
