So I am revising for my maths test resit cos I suck lol but anyway I have this question
Q1. A suit of playing cards has 13 cards, Ace through to King. What is the probability of the deck containing one suit being in order: A23456789TJQK after an unbiased shuffle? Inlude your reasoning.
I know it's 13! but how would I show this answer using a formula? I think it's nCk but I'm not sure, it's worth 5% so I need to include something in there.
I'm sorry to hear that. Do you not know that a probability is always between 0 and 1?
I think your problem is that you have no idea what the problem is asking. 13! is nowhere near the correct answer.but how would I show this answer using a formula? I think it's nCk but I'm not sure, it's worth 5% so I need to include something in there.
Well that's frustrating lol... you're right I don't understand half the questions i'm given, I really struggle with maths but I thought the question meant what are the chances, if you kept shuffling the deck over and over that you'd end up with 1 of the suits in full order. Please explain to question so I get what it means thanks.
oh I understand it now.... so there is just as much chance that lets say A2K36579Q48J appearing as there is A23456789JQK, I need to ignore the whole suit part of the question and just think of that as 1 combination, and there are 13! different combinations for that suit to be arranged?
