# How do you find the probability of getting a red face card in a deck of 52 cards?

$\left(\text{Number of accepted possibilities")/("Total possibilities}\right) = \frac{26}{52} = \frac{1}{2}$
There are 4 suits in a pack of cards, 2 of which are red. Each suit has 13 cards, so there are $2 \cdot 13 = 26$ red cards total. Now there are 52 cards in total, $P \left(\text{Red face card")=("Number of red face cards")/("Number of cards total}\right) = \frac{26}{52} = \frac{1}{2}$.
