    P(Queen or King)

    A card is chosen at random from a deck of 52 playing cards.
    There are 4 Queens and 4 Kings in a deck of playing cards.
    What is the probability the card chosen is a Queen or a King?

    Solution:

    P(Queen or King) =
    (4/52) + 4(52)

    P(Queen or King) = 8/52 = 2/13.

    Answer: 2/13

    Yes?
