# What is the probability of drawing a card from a standard deck and choosing a king or an ace?

Probability gives the chances of how likely an event is to occur.

## Answer: The probability of drawing a card from a standard deck and choosing a king or an ace is (1/13) × (4/51)

Let us go through the explanation to understand it better.

**Explanation:**

Total number of cards in a standard deck = 52

Number of Aces in a deck= 4

Number of Kings in a deck = 4

Probability of drawing a card from a standard deck and choosing a king or an ace = Probability of getting an Ace + Probability of getting a King

Probability of drawing an Ace at random = 4/52 = 1/13

Now, the probability of drawing a King at random = 4/52 = 1/13

hence, the required probability = 1/13 + 1/13 = 2/13

### Therefore, the probability of drawing a card from a standard deck and choosing a king or an ace is 2/13.
