In a standard deck of 52 cards - the probability of drawing any single card of two suits is 1:2 or 50%.

Probability not a club = 1 - probability it is a club = 1 - 13/52 = 1 - 1/4 = 3/4.

It is 4/13.

There is a 13 in 52, or 1 in 4, or 0.25 probability of drawing a club from a standard deck of 52 cards.

The probability is 22/52 = 11/26.

In a standard deck of 52 cards - the probability of drawing any single card of two suits is 1:2 or 50%.

The answer depends on how many cards are drawn.

There are 13 clubs in a standard deck of 52 cards. The probability, then, of drawing club is 13 in 52, or 1 in 4, or 0.25.

Probability not a club = 1 - probability it is a club = 1 - 13/52 = 1 - 1/4 = 3/4.

One quarter of the pack are CLUB cards. Three quarters of the pack are NOT CLUB cards. So the chance (probability) of picking a CLUB card is 1 out of 4 = 0.25 The chance (probability) of picking a NOT CLUB card is 3 out of 4 = 0.75 Adding the various probabilities the answer must always be 1.0, which is true here. If the probability of something happening is 1.0, that means the probability is "certainty". It is bound to happen.

There are 13 clubs in a deck of 52 cards. The probability of drawing 1 club from a deck of 52 is 13/52 or 1/4.

It is 4/13.

There is a 13 in 52, or 1 in 4, or 0.25 probability of drawing a club from a standard deck of 52 cards.

1 out of 52

The probability of not getting a club is the same as the probability of getting one of the other suits. There are (52-13)=39 such possibilities out of 52. Hence the probability is 39/52=3/4.

The probability is 22/52 = 11/26.
