The answer depends on whether or not the card is drawn randomly and also, whether or not the card drawn in the first attempt is replace.

### A card is drawn from a deck what is the probability that it is a nine or a club?

The probability of drawing a club or a nine from a 52 card deck
of standard playing cards is 16 / 52 or approximately 30.8%.
There are 13 clubs in a standard deck of cards.
There are four nines in a standard deck of cards.
One of the aces is a club.
So, 13 + 4 - 1 = 16 clubs or nines to choose from.
Since we have a total of 52 cards, the probability of selecting
a club or a nine is 16 / 52 or approximately 30.8%.

###### Asked in Statistics, Probability

### Are mutually exclusive events also complementary events?

Not necessarily. The probability of a complementary event with
probability p is 1-p. Two mutually exclusive events, however, don't
necessarily add up to a probability of 1.
For example, the probability of drawing a King from a standard
deck of cards is 1 in 13, which the complementary probability of
not drawing a King is 12 in 13.
The probability, however, of drawing a Heart is 1 in 4, while
the probability of drawing a Club is also 1 in 4. That leaves
Diamonds and Spades, which account for the remaining probability of
2 in 4.

###### Asked in Probability

### What are the chances of not picking a club out of 52 cards?

One quarter of the pack are CLUB cards. Three quarters of the
pack are NOT CLUB cards.
So the chance (probability) of picking a CLUB card is 1 out of 4
= 0.25
The chance (probability) of picking a NOT CLUB card is 3 out of
4 = 0.75
Adding the various probabilities the answer must always be 1.0,
which is true here.
If the probability of something happening is 1.0, that means the
probability is "certainty". It is bound to happen.

### What is probability of a drawn card being a club?

The answer depends on how many cards are drawn, whether or not
at random, from an ordinary deck of cards, with or without
replacement.
The probability for a single card, drawn at random, from a
normal deck of playing cards is 1/4.
