All Four Suits (Posted on 2006-06-06) Difficulty: 3 of 5
If you keep drawing cards from a shuffled deck, what is the expected number of draws to complete at least one card from each suit?

The expected value is the average number of draws that it would take if you repeated the experiment many times.
