There are four jacks in a deck of cards. p = 4/52 ~= 0.07692

The probability of drawing a heart is 1/4 or 25% (i.e., 13 of 52 cards). According to Wikipedia*, the one-eyed jacks are jack of spades and jack of hearts. The probability of drawing jack of spades is 1/52 (one card of 52). Therefore drawing either a heart (including the jack of hearts) OR jack of spades is (13/52 + 1/52) = 14/52 = 7/26 = 0.269 Just under 27 percent. * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One-eyed_jack#One-eyed_Royals

Probability of Jack being drawn is 4/52 since there are 4 Jacks and 52 cards in the deck. Also, the probability of drawing a Queen and King is 4/52. So, if you draw one card from a normal deck of cards the probability of drawing a jack or queen or king is 4/52 + 4/52 + 4/52 = 12/52 or 3/13 or 0.2308.

There are four 9's and four jacks. If you can use all of them, you can use 8 out of 52 cards. The probability of drawing one of these cards is therefore 8/52 = 0.1538 or a 15.38 % chance.
