In how many ways can you draw a 6 or a face card from a deck of 52 playing cards? Mr F says: 4 + 4(3) = 16.

How many ways are there to draw a 10 or a queen from the 24 cards in a euchre deck, which has four 10's and four queens? Mr F says: 4 + 4 = 8.

It would be best for you to get a textbook that explains this material. Perhaps a library might have one. Or you could buy one.

I will get a textbook soon. Probably by tomorrow.

I am in a grade 12 University line Data Management course.
Can you give me some advice on books which will be good for me?

I also have some other questions.

In how many ways can you choose a red five or a spade from a deck of cards?
I got 15 as my answer but i checked on the answer sheet and it says 14 =/

In how many ways can you arrange the letters of the word think so that the "T" and the "H" are separated by at least one other letter?

How many 5-Digit numbers are there that include the digit 5 and exclude the digit 8? Explain your solution.

Ten people are to be seated at a rectangular table for dinner. Tanya will sit at the head of the table. Henry must not sit beside either wilson or nancy. In how many ways can the people be seated for dinner?

Thanks in advance.

How many 5-Digit numbers are there that include the digit 5 and exclude the digit 8? Explain your solution. Mr F says:

1. Find how many 5-digit numbers you can make using the set of numbers {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9}. Call it n.
2. Find how many 5-digit numbers you can make using the set of numbers {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9}. Call it m.

Note that in both cases 0 cannot be the first digit.

3. The answer is n - m.

You should make a new thread for new questions.

In how many ways can you roll either a sum of 4 or a sum of 11 with a pair of dice?

sum 4 will be = (1, 3), (2, 2), (3, 1)= 3 ways
sum 11 will be = (6, 5), (5, 6)= 2 ways

total number of ways to get a sum of 4 or 11 is = 3+2 = 5 ways.

Hey I am new to this forum and i found this thread on a search engine.
i am doing these exact questions right now and i was wondering how you went about doing the question about pulling a 6 or a face card out of a deck of 52 cards.i didnt understand where the 4(3) came from. (Worried)
this forum seems very helpful and i am rly liking it.
