A man is known to speak truth 5 out of 6 times. He draws a face card from a pack of 52 playing cards. Find the probability that he reports it is a face card. Please no link

Dear student
Total no. of face cards = 3×4 = 12
Since , in every 6 times he says truth 5 times so he will report only 10 times that the card is a face cards In other two times , he'll say lie.
So ,no. of favourable outcomes = 10
Total number of outcomes = 52
P(probability) = 10/52= 5/26
