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

Spade: 1 in 4 Ace: 1 in 13

1/4

The answer depends on how many cards are drawn. If you draw 40 cards, the probability is 0. The probability of not drawing a spade in a random draw of one card from a standard deck is 39/52 = 3/4.

The probability of NOT drawing a spade from a standard deck of cards is 75 is an example of a mistated question - a standard deck of cards is 52, not 75.

The answer depends on how many cards are drawn. If you draw 40 cards, the probability is 0. The probability of not drawing a spade in a random draw of one card from a standard deck is 39/52 = 3/4.

The probability of drawing a red card and a spade in two cards is the probability of drawing a red card multiplied by the probability of drawing a spade, multiplied by 2 (as it doesn't matter which way around they are drawn). The probability of drawing a spade is 1/13 as there are 4 spades and 52 cards. The probability of drawing a red card after this is 26/51 if the spade was black, and 25/51 if the spade was red. This averages at 51/102 Multiply these probabilities together and then multiply by two and we get 51/663 which can be simplified to 1/13
