    That's OK. There's the 9 of hearts, the 9 of spades, the 9 of diamonds and the 9 of clubs. So there are four 9's.

    So, if you draw one card from the deck, how many ways can you be successful?

    4 9's in a deck of 52 cards. Divide 52 by 4 and you got your answer

    Not quite. To be successful, you must draw a 9. But there's four 9's in the deck, so there are four different ways you can be successful. Get it?

    Now, to calculate the probability, you divide the ways of being successful by the total number of possible outcomes. The number of successful outcomes is 4 and the total number of possible outcomes is 52. Just reduce the fraction to its lowest terms to get your answer.
