# What is the probability of drawing a spade from a deck of 52 cards?

## What is the probability of drawing a spade from a deck of 52 cards?

Hence for drawing a card from a deck, each outcome has probability 1/52. The probability of an event is the sum of the probabilities of the outcomes in the event, hence the probability of drawing a spade is 13/52 = 1/4, and the probability of drawing a king is 4/52 = 1/13.

## What is the probability of drawing a card from a standard deck and not getting a spade?

You should know that a standard 52-card deck is made up of four suits of 13 cards each. This means that there are 13 spades and 4 aces (the Ace of Spades is both). So the probability of drawing any spade is 1 in 4, and the probability of drawing any ace is 1 in 13.

**What is the probability of drawing a 3 from a deck of cards?**

A standard deck of playing cards has four suits — each suit has 3 face cards. That means a standard deck already contains twelve face cards, so the probability of getting three is 100%. Or did you mean “What is the chance of getting 3 face cards by picking only three cards without replacement?”

### What is the probability of drawing an ace of spades?

The additive rule applies to "either-or" cases. The probability of drawing an ace of spades or an ace of clubs is 1/52 + 1/52, or 1/26.
