  2. Serial order wise


Ex 16.3, 4 A card is selected from a pack of 52 cards. How many points are there in the sample space? Since these are 52 cards these are 52 points in this sample space n(S) = 52 Ex 16.3, 4 (b) Calculate the probability that the card is an ace of spades. Here, n(s) = 52 There are 13 spade cards out of which only 1 is ace Let A be the event of ace spade card selected n(A) = 1 Probability that ace spade card is selected = P(A) = (๐‘๐‘ข๐‘š๐‘๐‘’๐‘Ÿ ๐‘œ๐‘“ ๐‘Ž๐‘๐‘’ ๐‘ ๐‘๐‘Ž๐‘‘๐‘’ ๐‘๐‘Ž๐‘Ÿ๐‘‘)/(๐‘‡๐‘œ๐‘ก๐‘Ž๐‘™ ๐‘›๐‘ข๐‘š๐‘๐‘’๐‘Ÿ ๐‘œ๐‘“ ๐‘๐‘Ž๐‘Ÿ๐‘‘๐‘ ) = (n(A))/(n(S)) = ๐Ÿ/๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ Ex 16.3, 4 (c) Calculate the probability that the card is (i) an ace (ii) black card.
