There are 12 face cards ( 4 jacks, 4 queens, and 4 kings). Assume the cards have been shuffled (randomized). Part C : Separate the 12 face cards from the rest of the deck. Assume that the face cards have been shuffled. Select 3 cards from the pile of face cards. Answer each question in the table below and show how you derive the solution. Tell whether each action is a combination or a permutation and why. Table for Part C: Action Derivation and solution (please show your work) Combination or permutation Why How many different arrangements can be made by selecting 1 of each face card (i.e., jack, queen, king) from the pile? 12 ways of choosing

Unformatted text preview: the first card due to 12 cards in the deck, the remaining 8 cards that don't match the other one drawn as a second choice. Then there are just 4 cards that don't match either of the first two, so the number of possibilities is 12 x 8 x 4 = 384 Permutation Specified “arrangements” does connote a specif ic order . How many ways are there of selecting the queen of clubs, then the king of diamonds, and then the jack of hearts from the pile? W e are instructed to draw one specific permutation, the probability is 1 P ermutation Because the cards must be selected in a specific order. How many different selections of 3 cards can be made from 12 face cards? 12 x 11 x 10 = 1320 1320/6 = 220 Combination The instructions do not specify an order....
