You don't need Bayes theorem for that. There are 40 cards that are red w/ numbers out of 100 total. 40/100 is 40%.
Hi!
Say there is a deck of 100 cards:
Red w/ numbers = 40
Red w/ figures=15
Black w/ numbers=35
Black w/ figures=10
The only information known is that 55% of the cards are red and 45% of the cards are black and 75% of the cards have numbers and 25% of the cards have figures. That is the above-referenced number of cards is not known.
How one would apply Bayes’ Theorem to calculate the probability of a card being red w/ numbers? From the information given, the answer is 40%.
Thank you!

I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.
Maybe try rewriting your whole problem? It's not clear to me what you actually mean.

It appears that percentages alone cannot be used to calculate the probability.
