$\frac{6}{13}$

Explanation:

color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)("Probability(outcome)"=("desirable outcome")/("total possible outcomes"))color(white)(2/2)|)))

$\text{here total possible outcomes } = 52$

$\text{desirable outcome"=24larr" that is 6 or less in 4 suits}$

rArrP("6 or less")=24/52=6/13larr" simplest form"
