Highlights of a Standard Deck of Cards

The deck of cards that is being depicted by the name "standard deck" is also called a French deck. This name points to the deck's sources in history. There are various significant highlights to be called to attention for this kind of deck. The principle things that are important to know for probability are the following:

  1. There are a total of 52 cards in a standard deck.
  2. There are 13 ranks of cards. These ranks incorporate the numbers 2 through 10, jack, queen, king and ace. This order of the ranks is designated "ace high."
  3. In certain circumstances, an ace ranks above king (ace high). In different circumstances, the ace ranks beneath the 2 (ace low). Now and again an ace can be both high and low.
  4. There are four suits: hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs. Hence there are 13 hearts, 13 diamonds, 13 spades, and 13 clubs.
  5. The diamonds and hearts are printed in red. The spades and clubs are printed in black. So there are 26 red cards and 26 black cards.
  6. Each rank has four cards in it (one for every one of the four suits). This implies there are four nines, four tens, etc.
  7. The jacks, queens, and kings are viewed as face cards. Therefore, there are three face cards for each suit and a sum of 12 face cards in the standard deck.
  8. The deck does not include jokers.

Probability Examples

The above data proves to be useful when it's time to ascertain probabilities with a standard deck of cards. We will take a look at a progression of examples. These inquiries necessitate that we have decent working information on the arrangement of a standard deck of cards.

  • What is the probability that a face card is drawn? Since there are 12 face cards and 52 cards complete in the deck, the probability of drawing a face card is 12/52.
  • What is the probability that we draw a red card? There are 26 red cards out of 52, thus the probability is 26/52.
  • What is the probability that we draw a two or a spade? There are 13 spades and four twos. But, one of these cards (the two spades) has been double counted. The outcome is that there are 16 particular cards that are either a spade or a two. The probability of drawing such a card is 16/52.

<h2> Probabilities of a red face card <h2>

In a deck of 52 cards, there are 4 suits: Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts and Spades

Out of which 2 suits are red in Color: Diamonds and Hearts

Each Suit has 13 cards out of which 3 are face cards

Therefore, there are a total of 6 red face cards

Now, Probability of getting a red face card in a deck of 52 cards = (Number of red face cards in a deck)/(Total number of cards in a deck)

= 6/52

= 3/26

Thus, Probability of getting a red face card in a deck of 52 cards is 3/26.
