A pinochle deck consists of 48 cards. Eight of these cards are aces (2 aces per suit * 4 suits = 8 aces). So, for a random drawing from a complete pinochle deck, the probability of drawing an ace is 8/48 = 1/6.

Since there are 4 aces is a normal deck of 52 cards, the probability of drawing an ace is 4 in 52, or 1 in 13.

The probability is 4/52*3/51 ~= 0.0045 = 0.45%

The probability of drawing two Aces from a standard deck of 52 cards is 4 in 52 times 3 in 51, or 12 in 2652, or 1 in 221, or about 0.00452.

If you are drawing only two cards, the probability that they will both be aces is one in 221. ( (52 / 4) * (51 / 3) ) If you are drawing all the cards in the deck, one at a time, the probability that you will draw at least two aces in a row is much better than that, but how much better I leave for someone else to answer.

The probability of drawing one ace from a deck of 52 cards is 13 to 1 as there are 4 aces in a deck of 52 cards. The probability of then taking another ace is then 17 to 1 as there are now 3 aces in a deck of 51 cards. The total probability for the two events in succession would now be: (13 x 17) to (1 x 1) which is 221 to 1.

There are 52 cards in a deck there are 4 aces and 4 kings which makes a total of 8 kings and aces. Assuming that the deck is full and shuffled the probability of drawing an aces or a king is 8/52 which simplifies to 2/13

Probability is 4 aces/52 total cards = 1/13 = .07692

The probability of drawing a spade or an ace from a 52 card deck of standard playing cards is 16 / 52 or approximately 30.8%. There are 13 spades in a standard deck of cards. There are four aces in a standard deck of cards. One of the aces is a spade. So, 13 + 4 - 1 = 16 spades or aces to choose from. Since we have a total of 52 cards, the probability of selecting an ace or a spade is 16 / 52 or approximately 30.8%.

The answer depends on whether aces are high or low. With aces low, the probability is 5/13 on a single random draw.

4/52 X 3/51 x 2/50.
