The
value of each card is calculated as its face value (ace = 1 ... king =
13) times the value of its suit (clubs 1, hearts 2, spades 3, diamonds
4). The score for each play is the sum of the calculated value of each
of the four cards.
Examples: 3 of hearts = 3 x 2 = 6. Jack of spades = 11 x 3 = 33.
Assuming a new deal from a freshly-shuffled pack each time, which score
can be achieved in more ways than any other? How many ways? Which
scores below the maximum possible cannot be obtained by such a deal? |
