Answer:(a)So, there are 2 kings in red- one of hearts and the other of diamonds. Therefore, the probability of selecting a red king from a deck of cards= 2/52 or 1/26.(b) There are 6 red face cards in a 52-card deck (so 46 other cards). PROBABILITIES compare the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of possible outcomes: The PROBABILITY of getting a red face card is 6/52 = 3/26.

Answer:a) 2/52 chance of getting a red king

b) 52/2 against getting a red king
