Suppose I have a deck of 52 cards, and 51 of those cards were queens, while the remaining card is a Joker. If I were to arrange all of these cards at random, what's the probability that all of the 51 queens will be side-by-side?

Oh boy.... the chances of picking out a queen first is 1/52

 

The second 1/51

 

The third 1/50

 

And the chances keep going

 

1/49

 

1/48

 

1/47

 

1/46

 

1/45

 

1/44

 

1/43

 

1/42

 

1/41

 

1/40

 

1/39

 

Blah blah blah. Just multiply them together and you have your answer! I think... I'm not good at probability.

 

Yay!
