There are 4 Queens in a deck of 52 cards

In a standard deck of 52 cards, there are 4 Queens.  This is because there is 1 queen for each suit in a deck, and there are 4 suits in a deck, Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades.

There are two red suits, the Hearts and Diamonds, so there are 2 red queens.  These are the Queen of Diamonds and the Queen of Hearts.  There are two black suits, the Spades and Clubs, so there are exactly 2 black queens, the Queen of Spades and the Queen of Clubs.

How Many Red Queens Are There?

A deck of 52 cards has two red suits, the Hearts and the Diamonds.  Remember, each suit has exactly 1 Queen each.  So, this means there are 2 red queens in a deck of cards.  These are the Queen of Diamonds and the Queen of Hearts.

What is the Probability of Drawing a Queen from a Deck of 52 Cards?

The probability of drawing a Queen from a deck of 52 cards is 1/13.

This is because there are 4 Queens total in a deck of 52 cards.  If you are to draw one card at random, the chance of getting any one card would be 1/52.  But because there are 4 Queens, then you have 4 chances (instead of 1) of drawing the particular card.  There are 52 cards to choose from, and 4 of those cards are Queens.  So, every time you draw a card, you have a 4/52 chance of drawing a Queen, which is simplified down to 1/13.

How Many Court Queens are in a Deck of Cards?

All the Court Cards are the Jacks, Queens, and Kings in a deck.  See Types of Cards in a Deck of 52 Cards
