With a regular deck of 52 cards, how would you find the probability of getting the Ace of Spaces if you took turns until someone got it? This is without reshuffling.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If it was a 1/52 chance each time, I would be able to do it like

(1/52) * (inf. sum ((51/52)^2)^n)

But this would have a limit of 52 trials, and I never learned how to do that. Also, the probability of getting it would change for every card drawn. I also know that it would be different depending on who draws the first card.

Could I get any help?

Thanks
