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

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

## Answer: The probability of getting a red face card in a deck of 52 cards is 3/26.

Let's know about a deck of cards.

## Explanation:

In a deck of 52 cards, there are 4 suits: Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, and Spades

Out of which 2 suits are red in Colour: Diamonds and Hearts

Each Suit has 13 cards of which 3 are face cards(J, K, and Q)

Therefore there are a total of **6 red face cards**

Now, the probability of getting a red face card in a deck of 52 cards = (Number of red face cards in a deck)/(Total number of cards in a deck)

= 6/52

= 3/26

### Thus, the probability of getting a red face card in a deck of 52 cards is 3/26.
