## What is the probability of selecting a black card from a deck of cards?

**What is the probability of drawing a black ace from a deck of 52 cards?**

### What is the probability of choosing an ace or a black card?

However, The probability of getting a black card or an ace [which we may denote as P(black or ace)] is not P(black) + P(ace) since the former is 28/52 (there are 26 black cards and 2 red aces) while the latter is 26/52 + 4/52.

**What is the probability that a card selected at random from a standard deck of 52 cards is an ace or a heart?**
