What is the probability of drawing a card from a standard deck and choosing a king or an ace combined?
It is a case of mutually exclusive events.
Answer: The probability of drawing a card from a standard deck and choosing a king or an ace combined is (1/13) × (4/51)
Let us go through the explanation to understand it better.
Total cards = 52
Number of Aces = 4
Number of Kings = 4
Probability of drawing an Ace at random = 4/52 = 1/13
Now, probability of drawing a King = 4/51 (Since an ace is already picked out, total cards remaining = 52 – 1 = 51)
