Ok, so this question has been bothering me for some time. Suppose I randomly take the top 2 cards off of a deck of cards and look at them and then note them. I then flip the next card over face up and one more face down. I am then asked to guess if the face down card is greater than/equal to or less than/equal to the face up.

How would I go about finding the probability that a guess of greater than/equal to, will be right?
