Kaylee chose a card from a standard deck of playing cards.The probability of choosing a red queen is 1 over 13.Is this likely,unlikely,impossible,certain,or as likely as not?
The probability of choosing a red queen is in fact 1 out of 26. This is because there are two red queens in a standard deck containing 52 cards. So, the probability is
`2/52 = 1/26` , or approximately 3.84%.
This is unlikely, because the probability of this event is less than 50%.
An event with probability exactly 50% would be as likely as not, and an event with probability more than 50% would be likely.
An event with probability 100% is certain and event with probability 0% is impossible.
