## What is the probability of choosing a diamond from a deck of cards?

Probability of a diamond being drawn is as above, (1/13)(1/53). So total probability of either diamond or ace forming is((1/53)(1/4))+((1/53)(1/13))=1/53(1/4+1/13)=1/53((17/52))=17/(53*52)=17/2500, approximately.

**What is the probability of drawing 4 aces in a row?**

The first ace is a 4/52 chance, 4 aces and 52 cards. The second ace is 3/51, since there are three aces left and 51 cards in total. The third ace is 2/50(1/25) and the fourth is 1/49. Multiply these all together and you get 1/270725 which is 0.000004%.

**What is the probability of choosing the 5 of diamonds?**

The chances, in a standard deck, of having exactly 5 cards in the suit diamonds, is 0%, as 5 does not equal 13, isn't going to, won't “maybe” or “could be” or anything of the sort. If you did not mean “exactly” but rather “at least” then the chances would be 100%, as 5 or more will always be included in 13.

### What is the probability of getting a 4 in a deck of cards?

The probability of picking up an ace in a 52 deck of cards is 4/52 since there are 4 aces in the deck. The odds of picking up any other card is therefore 52/52 – 4/52 = 48/52.
