Question

In a 5-card poker hand, how many possible hands are there where there are exactly 2 cards of the same value plus 3 other cards with all different values none of which has the value 2. write down an explanation for the answer.

Answer #1

**Deck Of
Cards**

A deck of 52 cards has 4 suits, Spades, Clubs, Diamonds and Hearts

There are 13 cards in each suit, from 2 till 10, the 3 face cards J, Q, K and finally Ace.

Therefore there are 4 cards of each type i.e 4 kings, 4 queens etc

2 cards should be the same (here 2 can also be considered), so we choose 1 card among 13 in 13C1 ways = 13

From the card chosen, we choose 2 cards in 4C2 = 6 ways

There are now 11 cards to choose from ( as we do not want to choose 2), and 3 cards can be chosen in 11C3 = 165

Then for each chosen card we choose 1 card out of 4 in 4C1 * 4C1 * 4C1 = 64 ways

Therefore Total Possible ways = 13 * 6 * 165 * 64 = **823,680**

How many possible 5-card poker hands are there that
have exactly 3 jacks? Reminder: card decks have 52 total cards.
There are 13 possible denominations of card (Ace, 2, 3, ..., 10,
jack, queen, king) and 4 possible suits (clubs, diamonds, hearts,
spades).

How many 5 card poker hands have exactly three face cards? How
many have at least three face cards?

5. In poker, a “flush” is a five-card hand where all five cards
have the same suit. A hand has “three of a kind” when any three
cards have the same rank. “Four of a kind” is defined analogously.
A flush beats a three of a kind, but is beaten by four of a kind.
Demonstrate that this ranking of hands corresponds to how unlikely
each hand type is to occur when drawing five cards at random (Hint:
just count...

Q19. Consider an ordinary 52-card North American playing deck (4
suits, 13 cards in each suit).
a) How many different 5−card poker hands can be drawn from the
deck?
b) How many different 13−card bridge hands can be drawn from the
deck?
c) What is the probability of an all-spade 5−card poker
hand?
d) What is the probability of a flush (5−cards from the same
suit)?
e) What is the probability that a 5−card poker hand contains
exactly 3 Kings...

1.How many ways are there to draw a ﬁve-card poker hand that
contains ﬁve cards of the same suit?
2. How many ways are there to draw a ﬁve-card poker hand that
contains at least one ace?

2. Assume that you play poker with six-card hands. (A straight
has all six cards in a row; as in standard poker, aces are high or
low and there is no wrap-around. A flush has all six cards in the
same suit. (Use combinatorics)
(f) How many six-card hands contain a straight?

Determine the probability that a poker hand (of 5 cards) is
three of a kind.
Three of a kind means that there are exactly three cards of the
same face value (2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,J,Q,K, or A), and two other
cards with different face values.

. Consider 5-card hands from a standard 52-card deck of cards
(and consider hands as sets, so that the same cards in different
orders are the same hand). In your answers to following questions
you may use binomial coefficients and/or factorials. (Recall that
there are 4 Aces, 4 Kings, and 4 Queens in the deck of cards)
a) How many different 5-card hands are there?
b) How many hands are there with no Aces?
c) How many hands are there...

Part A Poker Hands: In this activity, we will apply some of the
various counting techniques that we have studied including the
product and sum rules, the principle of inclusion-exclusion,
permutations, and combinations. Our application will be counting
the number of ways to be dealt various hands in poker, and
analyzing the results.
First, if you are not familiar with poker the following is some
basic information. These are the possible 5-card
hands:
Royal Flush (A,K,Q,J,10 of the same suit);...

With a standard deck of 52 playing cards, how many seven-card
hands containing exactly one pair of 5's are possible?
