**GCSE** **Mathematics**** Question Analysis Topic: Mathematics - Probability**

**Exam Question:**

A card is drawn at random from a well shuffled pack of 52 playing cards. Find the probability that the drawn card is neither a king nor a queen.

**Answer:**

For GCSE Mathematics, you should know:

We know that there are 52 cards in a deck. In such a deck, four cards are kings and four cards are queens i.e., the total number of kings and queens is 8.

In other words, 52 - 8 = 44 of the cards are not a king or queen.

As such, the probability that a card neither king nor queen is 44 / 52 = 11 /13.

Work hard for your GCSE Mathematics examination!
