How do you find the probability of getting a red face card in a deck of 52 cards?

There are 52 cards in a deck of playing cards. If a card is drawn from this well shuffled deck, the total number of all possible outcomes = 52.

Let the event of a red face card be (A)

∵ N number of face cards in the deck = 12

∴ Number of red face cards in the deck = 6

Then the number of possible outcomes of event (A).

⇒ P(A)

= Number of favourable outcomes of (A)/ Total number of possible outcomes

=6/52 = 3/26
