CSE 260 SOLUTIONS TO YELLOW QUIZ 7 Spring 2007 INSTRUCTIONS: When your answer includes a product of integers, multiply them out. 1. [4 points] Suppose that we take a 52-card deck of cards and throw away all of the cards except aces, kings, queens, jacks, and tens. We are left with a deck of cards containing just 5 denominations and 4 suits, for a total of 20 cards instead of 52. Instead of ( 52 5 ) = 2,598,960 different five-card hands that can be drawn from a full deck, there are only ( 20 5 ) = 15,504 different five-card hands that can be drawn from this smaller deck. How many of the five-card hands that can be drawn from this 20-card deck would count as two pairs in poker (two cards of one denomination, two cards of a second denomination, and a fifth card of a third denomination)? If you do it the way the book did in Example 6.4.9, you would get 5 2 4 2 4 2 12 1 = 10 × 6 × 6 × 12 = 4,320 hands. Or you could calculate the number of ways to pick two denominations for the two pairs and a third denomination for the unmatched card in ( 5 2 )( 3 1 )

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
