**What ****is ****the ****probability**** ****of ****drawing ****a ****king ****from ****deck ****of ****5****2**** ****cards?**

Hence From **drawing **a **card **from a **deck,**** **each outcome has **probability**** **1/**5****2****.**** **The **probability**** **of an event is the sum of the **probabilities**** **of the outcomes in the event, hence the **probability**** ****of ****drawing **a spade is 13/**5****2**** **= 1/4, and the **probability**** ****of ****drawing**** a**** ****king ****is **4/**5****2** = 1/13.

**What ****is ****the ****number ****of ****favorable**** ****outcomes****?**

The **number**** ****of**** favorable**** ****outcomes**** **is the **number **of choices (such a rolling a two on a die) and the probability is found by comparing this to the total **number**** **of **outcomes**** **(six in case of a die.) Arithmetic can be used to calculate **outcomes.**
