# How do you find the probability of getting a red face card in a deck of 52 cards?

Probability is the possibility of occurrence of a favourable outcome to a random event. It is the ratio of the number of favourable outcomes to the total number of trials.

## Answer: The probability of getting a red face card in a deck of 52 cards is 6/26.

Let us see the solution.

**Explanation:**

As we know that there are 52 cards in a deck

Number of cards in each suit = 13, 2 suits of red cards and black cards each

Number of faced cards in each suit = 3, face cards are J, Q and K

P(red faced card) = 3/13 + 3/13

= 6/26

### Thus, the probability of getting a red faced card is 6/26
