1. 1352, because 13 hearts in a standard deck of 52 cards.

2. 452=113, because 4 queens in a standard deck of 52 cards.

3. If we want to find the probability of finding one greater than 2 but less than 9, this means we have 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. This is a total of 6 cards. Since two of the suites are red, this means we have a total of 26=12 cards.

P(getting a red card between 2 and 9= 1252=313
