Let x represent the number of cards in a row from the left that are in ascending order.

For example if the cards were 3 15 22 59 40 7 19 30 33 34 then x=4. The streak ends with the 59 because 40 is less.

Find a formula for p(x), the probability the first x cards are in ascending order and card x+1 is lower than card x, where x={1,...,10}

Generalize: For a deck of c cards labeled 1 to c and flipping over a row of n cards. Find a formula for p(x) where x={1,...,n}
