Hi sinclairv,

It is by definition that Probability of an event = (number of favorable cases)

/(exhaustive number of cases)

The number of favorable cases would be 16, 'cause even if 7 of club is picked - although it fulfills the criteria of being a club or being 7, it will be counted as 1 card only.

And therefore the probability is 16/52.

So, whenever dealing with probability questions, try to visualize a real life example...and it will make the problem easy.

Regards,
