Math 55 Worksheet Permutations, Combinations 1. Five-card draw is played with a standard, 52-card deck. There are 13 different kinds, or ranks of cards: the numbers 2 to 10, and the face cards, jack (J), queen (Q), king (K) and ace (A). And there are four cards of each rank, each in one of the four suits: clubs ( ), diamonds ( ), hearts ( ) and spades ( ). Certain combinations of cards are called “hands” – these hands are listed below, in order from best to worst. So a player who draws a four-of-a-kind beats a player who draws a straight. A player’s best hand is the best combination they can make from their cards. So a player with A A 4 2 4 can make one pair – aces – but their “best hand” is two pairs, aces and fours. How many ways are there for each of these to be drawn as someone’s best five-card hand: (a) straight flush? (Five consecutive cards of the same suit. The ace can be the highest card in the straight, or the lowest, but not both at once – A2345 and 10JQKA are allowed, but QKA23 is not.)

    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.
