## chawla one year ago A standard deck consists of 52 cards, distributed as follows: There are 13 cards in each of 4 suits: hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs. Hearts and diamonds are red. Spades and clubs are black. In each suit there are 13 ranks: Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King. The "face" cards are those that have a person’s face on them: Jack, Queen, or King. One card is dealt. Find the chance that it is a face card.

cards are dealt from a well-shuffled deck; that is, cards are dealt at random without replacement.

The chance of a face card being dealt is given by: $P(face\ card)=\frac{number\ of\ face\ cards}{total\ number\ of\ cards}$
