Total numbers of cards = 5 P(E) = (Number of favourable outcomes/ Total number of outcomes) (i) Numbers of queen = 1 P (picking a queen) = ⅕ = 0.2 (ii) If the queen is drawn and put aside, the total numbers of cards left is (5-4) = 4 (a) Total numbers of ace = 1 P (picking an ace) = ¼ = 0.25 (b) Total numbers of queen = 0 P (picking a queen) = 0/4 = 0
