What is the probability that exactly one card is a king?Answer by sophxmai(60)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Probability is (total number of desired outcomes)/(total number of possibly outcomes) Desired outcome: you want 1 king, and 4 other cards To get that, you use combinatorics: 4C1 x 48C4 = 778320 Total outcome: 5 card hand To get that, you do 52C5 = 2598960 Then the probability is P(1 king in a 5 card hand)= 778320 / 2598960 = 0.299
