Hence, that the spade (b) ace comes to. me has 13/52=1f4 probability. Given that this happens, the probability of getting the diamond (0) age is 12/51. And simﬂerly,- if those twa aces are with me, the heart ('59) ace. I get with 7 f probability 11/50, and then the club (i) ate with probability 10/49. 30 the probability of getting all of them is The expected Win is therefore 100 - 0.0026+0_ ~ (1 — 0.0026) = 0.26, that 3 l is, 26 cents. . 0] 2.
