## What is the probability of picking 2 aces from a deck of cards?

The chance of drawing one of the four aces from a standard deck of 52 cards is 4/52; but the chance of drawing a second ace is only 3/51, because after we drew the first ace, there were only three aces among the remaining 51 cards. Thus, the chance of drawing an ace on each of two draws is 4/52 × 3/51, or 1/221.

### What is the probability of drawing five cards from a standard deck and getting exactly 2 face cards?

The probability of both happening is 3/13*11/51, or 33/663, or 11/221 (approximately 4.978%). If a card is drawn at random from a pack of cards, how do I find the probability that it would be a diamond king? You draw 5 cards from a deck of 52.

#### What are the odds of randomly pulling a face card from a deck of cards?

There are 52 cards in a deck… 12 of these are Face Cards (the J – Q – K of all four suits). The probability of getting one of these is therefore 12 out of 52 — or 12/52, which is 23%.
