Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We were having a conversation about odds, probability and so forth... and we were shuffling some cards.

All of sudden, a question was asked, and we have no idea how to figure it out.

After shuffling a deck of cards repeatedly (long after it has come out of the box), what would be the mathematical odds of turning the deck over to reveal that every card is in order - ace, ace, ace, ace, two, two, two, two and so on.

To take it a step further, what would be the odds of them showing up in numerical order, AND in the same order of suit - hearts, diamonds, spades, clubs for each set?

Thanks in advance!

Mandy
