comment MTG: Probability of drawing a card with enough mana to play it (part 2)
Is that not just a re-branding of my question or am I missing something?

Is there a more general way to approach this problem? Could you point me to a resource where I might learn more about how you arrived at your answer? I have never seen the subtraction within the hypergeometric series before.

Well that's my question. I understand that its the equivalent of nested loops - that is how I verified. However, I plugged in the limits just as you put them. My question is, how did you determine what to put in your formula? Is there more work you can show for your answer?

Still having some issues understanding the upper limits of the summations (eg. 3, 8-SP, 10-P-Sw). Can you explain how you got there? Or perhaps point me to a resource that could explain that process? I feel like a few critical steps are not being shown in the answer.

Ok great - I wrote a quick forloop and came out with the same answer. Now I'll just need to apply this more generally. Thanks, Dale!

Sorry, do you mind expanding your answer a bit? The multiplied summations are throwing me off. Also, I was wondering if the 13 choose Sp is a typo? Should that be 13 choose Sw? (Example 2.9 of statpower.net/Content/310/Summation%20Algebra.pdf was helpful to understand the mechanics of this operation, but I'm still having trouble seeing how you got there)

Can you explain how you got the 8-Sp in the second summation series?

Marked as answer. I figured it would give other users more clarity if you elaborated in your answer.

Based on the following: substepr.com/w/…, I believe I have found the solution. This way is also applicable to finding the answer to my previous question much more easily. If you would like to post the full answer, I will mark it as such.
