Find the probability of selecting · a five given the card is a not a club. · a heart given the card is red. · a face card, given that the card is black. Show step by step work. Give all solutions exactly in reduced fraction form.

    if it is really a standard deck then there are 13 cards of each denomination, one is a 5 and the probability you pick a 5 is \[\frac{1}{13}\]

    of the red cards, half are diamonds and half are hearts so probability you pick a heart is \[\frac{1}{2}\]

    out of each suit of 13 cards 3 are face cards so probability you get a face card is \[\frac{3}{13}\]

    1.probability of selecting a five given the card is a not a club clubs,hearts,spades,diamonds there are 4 fives in standard deck so, 3/52 2. a heart given the card is red. there are 13 hearts in a deck so, 13/52=1/4 3.a face card, given that the card is black. there are 12 face cards in a deck and 6 of them are black so, 6/52=3/26
