Question Description

Suppose you draw a five-card hand from the deck and get four cards that that would make a straight if you could replace the fifth card. (e.g. J 10 9 8 3 or K 7 6 4 3). If you are allowed to discard the fifth card and draw one at random from the remaining 47 cards, what is the probability that your modified hand will be a straight?
