EXPLANATION:
SO B+R=12, and we have to find the value of R12R12 or 1−B121−B12

(1) The pack has 6 more red cards than black cards.
Thus, R=B+6, but we know B+R=12 => B+B+6=12.....B=3, and so R=9.
Probability = 9/12=3/4
Suff

(2) The pack has 3 red cards for every black card
Ratio R:B=3:1, R:(B+R)=R:(T)=3:(3+1)=3:4
So probability = 3/4
Suff
