Test #3 Name
_________________
60 points
Impact on Course Grade: approximately 10% Score _________________
Solve each problem based on the information provided. It is not necessary to complete every
calculation. That is, your responses may contain combinatorial notation (factorials, exponents,
combinations, permutations). Include explanations as needed.
You are to work alone on this test. You may not use anyone else's work. You may refer to one or more
sheets showing general difference tables, and you must turn in such information with your test
responses. You may not refer to any other materials as you complete the test. You may ask me
questions. You may use a calculator, but no other technology tools. You may not make internet
connections, search the web, or use any sort of mental telepathy.
Evaluation Criteria
Each of questions 1 through 6 is worth 10 points. Some questions have more than one part. For each
question and each part, a point assignment is indicated.
Some questions require explanation and some do not. Read carefully and ask me if you need help in
determining whether an explanation is required.
For questions requiring explanation:
Approximately 60% of the points revolve around a correct solution to the problem. I will
evaluate the mathematics you use:
o Is it accurate and appropriate?
o Have you provided adequate justification?
Approximately 40% of the points count toward how you express your solution. I will evaluate
how you communicate your results:
o Is your solution clear and complete?
o Have you expressed logical connections among components of your solution?
The BONUS! is worth 7 points, including 4 points for (I) and 3 pts for (II).

2. For this problem, consider a standard deck of 52 playing cards.
(a) How many unique hands of 5 cards exist? (2 pts)
_______________
(b) How many ways can 5 cards be dealt to a card player? (2 pts) ______________________
(c) A 5-card hand that contains 3-of-a-kind of one card value and 2-of-a-kind of a different card
value is called a full house. For example, a hand with 4, 4, 4, and 7, 7 (“three 4’s and
two 7’s,called fours over sevens) is a full house. How many different full-house 5-card hands
are possible? (3 pts)
_______________
(d) How many ways are there for two players to have a total of k cards? It is permissible that the
two players may not each have the same number of cards. (3 pts)
