# What is the probability of drawing a spade?

## What is the probability of drawing a spade?

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 are the odds against drawing a card and getting a spade?

Mathematicians measure probability by counting and using some very basic math, like addition and division. For example, you can add up the number of spades in a complete deck (13) and divide this by the total number of cards in the deck (52) to get the probability of randomly drawing a spade: 13 in 52, or 25 percent.

**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.

### How many spades are in a deck of 52 cards?

A standard deck of cards contains 52 cards. There are cards of 4 different suits- Spades, Clubs, Hearts and Diamonds. So, the number of Spade cards= 52/4 =13 cards. These include number cards from 2 through 10, a Jack, a Queen, a King and an Ace.
