A deck of cards is a great tool for learning about probability.
There are 52 cards in a standard deck of cards, divided into 4 suits: clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades.
Each suit has 13 cards: 1 ace, 2-10, jack, queen, and king.
The probability of drawing any one card from a well-shuffled deck is 1/52.
The probability of drawing a specific card, such as the ace of spades, is 1/52.
The probability of drawing a red card is 26/52 = 1/2.
The probability of drawing a face card (jack, queen, or king) is 12/52 = 3/13.
Probability can be used to calculate the odds of winning a game of cards, or to make predictions about future draws.
