A standard deck of poker cards has 52 cards. In the deck there
are 13 different card types labeled: Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,
8, 9, 10, J, Q, K. Each type has 4 cards, each in a different
suit: clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades.
In the following identify the appropriate probability distribution.
Give its parameters. Use the userdefined functions of
the Random Variables Addin to answer the
numerical questions.
a. I am about to be dealt a hand of five cards (this is selection
without replacement). I want to find the probability that at
least three of the cards will be Aces.
b. The dealer will show me five cards. After
each card is drawn, it is returned to the deck (this is selection
with replacement). I want to find the probability that at least
three of the cards shown are Aces.
c. The dealer will show me a series of cards. After each card
is drawn, it is returned to the deck (this is selection with
replacement). The dealer will keep showing me the cards until
3 aces are discovered. I want to find the probability that five
cards or fewer cards must be shown.
