# For a standard deck of 52 what is the probability of randomly picking either an ace or a king?

If we pick a random card, what is the probability of picking either an Ace or King?

Probability measures the percentage or fraction of the time we'll achieve a certain result (in a fraction, this is the numerator) over the total number of possible outcomes (this is the denominator). In this question, there are 8 cards that will satisfy our conditions (4 Kings, 4 Aces) and 52 total outcomes, so we get:

There are 4 aces and 4 kings in a standard deck of 52 cards.

The probability of randomly picking either an ace or a king can be calculated as follows:

[ \text{Probability} = \frac{\text{Number of favorable outcomes}}{\text{Total number of outcomes}} ]

[ \text{Probability} = \frac{4 + 4}{52} = \frac{8}{52} = \frac{2}{13} ]

So, the probability of randomly picking either an ace or a king from a standard deck of 52 cards is ( \frac{2}{13} ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
