  1. math.

    not true.

    the total number of events is just 55*54/2 + 55. think about it. make two sets. where we have two different cards and the same cards.

    different cards:
    55 choose 2.
    55*54/2

    same cards:
    we have 55 pairs.

    stop playing with cards and study math!

  10. Last guess for real this time:

    6 of Spades and 10 of Diamonds

    Thanks for the extra guess, Wayne!
     
  11. My extra Guess:

    A double backer and a blank card

    Weird guess, but owell
     
  12. Omg! It seems that both my first and second guesses had been taken up by the others. I'm wondering if I should look through all of the posts, compile them into a list, and thoroughly analyse the guesses, and come up with a very educated guess using the process of elimination? By but the time I had done so, some others might just have had their wild guesses right! So I might just as well have a wild guess here... Lol!

    Guess 3: Two Nines of Hearts

    Don't know if anyone had the samething AGAIN before me. :p
     
  13. guys, I think we should all just start guessing before it hits 11.
    We have a half hour to figure out what the two cards are.

    Deal Or No Deal?

  16. Wow. ThrallMind. You really are putting a lot of thought into this very simple contest. =)
     
  17. Man, its gonna take Wayne ages to read all these guesses......
     
  18. i know stat.

    i tell you sir, it does not. haha.

    combinations (order does not matter a.k.a king of spades-ace of spades is equal to ace of spades-king of spades)-

    nCx (n choose x)
    n!/(x!*(n-x)!)
    so (55*54*...)/((53*52*51..)(2*1))

    permutations (order does matter a.k.a king of spades-ace of spades is NOT equal to ace of spades-king of spades)

    nPx
    simply. n!/(n-x)!


    i stand by 55*54/2 + 55 = 1540 i think
     
  19. guess 4

    TWO ACE OF CLUBS
     
  20. My fourth and final guess.

    two 3 of clubs
