1. ## drawing carss from a deck

In how many ways can you draw any odd number or a face card from a deck of 52 cards?

This i what i have so far:

20/52 cards are odd in the whole deck
12/52 cards are face cards

so would u do 20!/ 52 and 12!/52

or would u do 20!12!/52

i would appreciate if someone could help me wid this
=)

2. How does one count the aces?
Is an ace an odd number, 1? Is it a face card? Is it both?

Thirty two cards are favourable outcomes of 52 possible draws.

5. aces is considered as 1 which is therefore an odd number

and the question states how many WAYS.. it does not seem like a simple probability problem where u add both the probabalities. it seems that there is permutations invloled.

For it to be anything more than the simple counting of favourable to
unfavourable outcomes I would expect a number of cards to be drawn to be specified.
