The game of bridge is played by four players: north, south, east and west.
Each of these players receive 13 cards.
(a) What is the probability that one of the players receives all 13 spades?
I am having serious trouble with this one, the answer in the back of the book is 6.3 10^-12 and I cant seem to match it.
At first I thought it may be C(13,13)/C(52,13) but thats considering only one player.
Then I thought maybe C(13,13)*C(39,13)*C(26,13)*(13,13)/C(52,52) but this does not work either.
Help!!
