Delia is trying to show her brother a new magic trick with a deck of cards. If she asks her brother to draw a card from the deck. What is the probability that he will draw an joker?

A.

1/52
B.1/50

C.

1/27

D.

1/2

I picked the answer of 1/52, and i got it wrong

The answer is 1/27 because there are 2 jokers, not one.

but 52/2 is 26, so there should be 1/26

oh hmm... I just noticed that. That is the only possible answer though, it might be a typo on their part of the question? 1/52 isn't possible because there's 2 jokers out of 52.  1/50 isn't possible because there are 52 cards, not 50. 1/2 isn't possible because there's only 2 jokers  so 2/52= 1/27.

So the only possible one is C , if they have made a typo on their part.
