I’m dealing with an exercise which deals with the poker game. I need to calculate the probability of getting a full house. Full house is getting 3 cards of the same type and 2 cards of the same type. I’ve made a research, but I cannot understand why the combination for getting a full house […]

The title problem is just one specific example of a more generalized problem that I’m trying to solve. I’m trying to write an efficient algorithm for calculating the probability of at least k occurrences each of several dependent events occurring in a particular sample space. It is the presence of wildcards and multiple types of […]

I was looking at this website http://www.cwu.edu/~glasbys/POKER.HTM and I read the explanation for how to calculate the probability of getting a full house. To me, the logic basically looked like you figure out the number of possible ranks and multiply by the number of ways to choose the cards from that given rank. In other […]
