Number 19

From a standard 52 card deck what is the probability of five card hand having at least one face card?

There are 12 faces

and 40 no face cards

x>/= ( i was trying to write greater than or equal to since there is no typing symbol for both)

P (x>/=1) 1-P(o)

P(x>/=1) 1-(12C0)(40C5)/52C5


In the calculator you use the function button of nCr

So you calculate 12 (2nd button NCR) O then times 40 (2nd button down NCR) 5

which will give you 658008

divide that number by 52C5 (52 2nd NCR) 5

which will give you 2598960

when you divide the 2 numbers you get


you minus this number from 1


which equals .7468

  1. You have a good setup and great talk-through for calculator users (which I think will be a help to students looking at it). Could you add some explanation for the formulas you use? It be a help if students knew a little about where they came from / why you use those formulas.

  2. To increase your bankroll in slot-machine gaming, one of the finest methods to do it’s to play bonus game position machines. While some slot models give out bonus upon winning, not all of them do. Additionally, there are casinos that maybe not present winnings with in-game bonuses. In this case, it is likely to be sensible for slot players to find these casinos independently or through on line resources. There are a few those who have taken it upon themselves to examine all the different types of models in the casino or online casinos; through that they’ll know when they will set down their cash and when they are able to simply take their chances.
