Question

# A card is drawn from a well-shuffled pack of $$52$$ cards. Find the probability of getting a non-ace?

Solution

## Total number of cards $$= 52.$$So the number of possible outcomes $$= 52.$$Let E be the event of getting a non-ace card.There will be $$48$$ non-ace cards.Number of favourable outcomes $$= 48$$$$P(E)=\dfrac{Number \,of \,favourable\, outcomes}{Number\, of\, possible\, outcomes}$$$$P(E) = 48/52 = 24/26 = 12/13$$Hence the probability of getting a non-ace card is $$12/13$$.Maths
