    yes, first find how many red cards are there in total then divide it by total number of cards P =#red cards / total # of cards

    yes, 0.5 is correct :) Face cards - Jacks, Queens, and Kings are called "face cards" because the cards have pictures of their names. so, in 52, how many face cards will be there ?
