easy game, standard crd deck, 52 cards, ace low.

5 of them playing, each take one card ,

lowest card wins

so if one has say a 4 , whats the odds / probability of that being the lowest ?

I got to thinking, If I had a king, then its 100 percent that its not th elowest, if I had a ace, its 100 percent I have the lowest, ( even if its tied with others )

So there must be a tabel / equation, of th enumber of players, what card I have and giving the resultant probabilit that I have the lowest.

I was thinking htere are 4 others, If I have the 4, there is a 3*4 / 51 chance of each of them having a lower card,

but how to "combine" that probability as there are 4 others

then got thinking, only 4 cards of each number in a pack, so if say 6 playing, its also garunteed that the others do not all have the same card,

Any one outthere wants to try to explain to my simple head how to approach this please

sorry , I never got on with statistice at school all those decadews ago,

but still interested..
