    Do you get that? Count all the possibilities that are what you are looking for, then divide by the number of cards (52). 13 spades / 52 cards = ? Ace King Queen Jack without a number (we could argue about Ace, I suppose) so 9 cards with numbers in each suit of 13 (or count from 2 to 10 :) ) 9 x 4 = 36 / 52 = ?
