Answer :

**Given:** a card is drawn at random from a well-shuffled deck of 52 cards.

**To find:** the probability of getting neither a red card nor a queen.

**Explanation:**

In a well-shuffled deck of 52 cards

There are 13 + 13 = 26 red cards

And 4 queens, but out of these 2 queens are red in color.

Hence the numbers of cards which are red cards or a queen are 26 + 2 = 28 cards.

So out of these 28 cards, a card is drawn.

So, the probability of getting either a red card or a queen is

P (getting either a red card or a queen)

So, the probability of getting neither a red card nor a queen is = 1 – P (getting either a red card or a queen)

Hence the probability of getting neither a red card nor a queen is .
