For this problem we need to find the probability for at least three red cards are drew in 5 cards that was drawing from a standard deck. We know that the set of deck cards is a total of 52 cards with two colors, half black and half red. First we need to create a function to draw the cards from the deck in order to see if there is at least 3 red cards. And then we need to randomly shuffle the deck which is a variable that is created to represent both colors, then we will create a if then statement and then calculate the probability.

In :
import numpy as np

def cards():
deck=["black" for a in range(26)]+["red" for a in range(26)]
np.random.shuffle(deck)
thefirstfivecards=deck[:5]
number_of_redcards=thefirstfivecards.count("red")

if number_of_redcards>=3:
return 1
else:
return 0

In :
iterations=100000
result =[cards() for a in range(iterations)]

In :
probability=(sum(result)/iterations)*100


My code does not run to tell me the probalibity for at least 3 red cards,but I believe the probability might be about 49 to 50 percent.
