    playing cards question

    Hi guys,

    hoping someone can help me

    could someone explain how to work out the probability of the following involving a deck of 52 cards

    if 13 cards are dealt out one by one (face up so you can see) , what is the probability that at any one time during the 13 card deal that the number on the card will match the order in the sequence in which the card has been dealt ie. (going from Ace low to King high) will the 1st card be an Ace OR will the 2nd card be a 2 OR will the 3rd card be a 3, OR 4th a 4, .....10th a 10, OR 11th a Jack, OR 12th a Queen, OR the 13th a King?

    Hope I've explained that ok

    Thanks in advance
