Question

# Five cards the ten , jack , queen , king and ace of diamonds are well shuffled with their faces downwards, $$1$$ card is then picked up at random $$(i)$$ what is the probability that drawn card is a queen ? $$(ii)$$ If the queen is drawn and put aside and a second card is drawn. find the probability that the second card is an ace , a queen ? explain

Solution

## Total cards$$=5$$$$(i)$$Number of queens$$=1$$$$\Rightarrow P\left(queen\right)=\dfrac{1}{5}$$$$(ii)$$ If the queen is drawn and put aside, then remaining cards$$=5-1=4$$$$(a)$$Number of aces$$=1$$$$\Rightarrow P\left(ace\right)=\dfrac{1}{4}$$$$(b)$$Number of queens$$=0$$$$\Rightarrow P\left(queen\right)=0$$Maths
