Homework Help: Nelson Mathematics of Data management 4.6

  1. Mar 14, 2012 #1
    " A standard deck of cards has had all face cards ( Jack, Queens, and Kings) removed so that only the ace through ten of each suit remains. A game is played in which two cards are drawn (without replacement) from this deck and a six-sided die is rolled. For the purpose of this game, an ace is considered to have a value of 1."

    Question: Find the probability that the sum of the cards and the die is 7

    2. Relevant equations
    Doing this for a friend and i don't recall the equations for Permutations and Combinations and probability... Sorry!

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I was able to get out of a deck of 40 cards the possible number of outcomes are 1560(40x39) and 1/6 since it's a die.
    My final answer i got was 1/624
    the number of possible out comes in the deck is 15 that have a combination lower than 6.
