MINDBLOWN Episode #3: The 52 Standard Card Deck Factorial….CRAZY!!!

Hello everyone, welcome to Episode 3 of the “MINDBLOWN” series!

In this episode, you wlll discover a mind-blowing fact about the “52 Factorial” behind a standard 52 deck of cards. If you shuffle a deck of standard playing cards, then the order in which they are now in has never happened before, ever, with any deck of playing cards, that has ever existed, in the history of playing cards. 

 

The number of possible combination in which a standard deck of playing cards can be in, no Jokers, no bridge rules just four suits of thirteen cards Ace through King is known as 52 shriek or just written as 52! It is worked out by multiplying each number of possible combinations remaining after one has been shown so its 52*51*50*49…etc all the way down to 1. That is a very large number, there is a 1 in 80658175170943878571660636856403766975289505440883277824000000000000 chance that you will produce a repeat sequence.

To place this in a little bit of perspective imagine you have 1,000,000 (1 Million) planets, on each planet there are 1,000,000 people, each person has 1,000,000 computers, each computer is running a program shuffling 1,000,000 decks of cards 1,000,000 times each second. If I set these individuals to this task on the day the Universe was created some 13.7 billion years ago only now in the PRESENT DAY would there start to be repeat combinations…

I don’t know about anyone else but this makes my brain hurt just to think about…

Oh and I found this explanation while researching the numbers 52 Factorial just in case your having trouble with my explanation of 52! enjoy.

Edit* This answer is based purely on statistics and not actual facts we don’t (and never will) know the outcome of every card shuffle ever, but odds are we have not covered even 0.000001% of the total possible combinations yet, which means if you shuffle a deck of cards and lay them out there is a 99.999999% chance you have laid out an absolute world first.
