Question

# A die is thrown and a card is selected at random from a deck of 52 playing cards. The probability getting an even number on the die and a spade card is

A
1/2
B
1/4
C
1/8
D
3/4

Solution

## The correct option is C 1/8Let $$E_1$$ = Event for getting an even number on the die And $$E_2$$=Event that a spade card is selected $$\therefore P(E_1)=\dfrac{3}{6}=\dfrac{1}{2}$$ and $$P(E_2)=\dfrac{13}{52}=\dfrac{1}{4}$$Then, $$P(E_1\cap E_2)=P(E_1)\cdot P(E_2)=\dfrac{1}{2}\cdot\dfrac{1}{4}=\dfrac{1}{8}$$Maths
