# A card is pulled from the deck, what is the probability it will be the ace of spades?

May 14, 2018

~1.9% chance you'll draw the Ace of Spades

#### Explanation:

There are 52 cards in a deck and one Ace of Spades in the deck. This can be expressed as $\frac{1}{52}$. Divide to find the percent.

$\frac{1}{52} = 0.01923076923$

There's a 1.9% chance you'll draw an Ace of Spades.

You don't actually have to divide $\frac{1}{52}$ to know you percentage probability..... See that $\frac{1}{52}$ can be written as $\frac{2}{104}$ which.. approximately.. is $\frac{2}{100}$ which is 2%

But remember that I'm only doing it because $104$ is near to $100$
the larger the number will differ from $100$ the larger the answer will differ from the real one
