I'm working on an assignment that asks us to model a deck of cards by creating a map in a labeling scheme with the numbers 0-53 (including the jokers). I'm a little lost on how to do this.. I've looked through our text books and looked for hints but, I have not found anything. I have also looked through lecture notes as well and I can't unfortunately figure out how to accomplish this.
The hints that we are offered are:
2c -> 0, 2d -> 1, 2h -> 2, 2s -> 3, and etc, etc until Ac -> 48, Ad->49, Ah-> 50, As->51. .
What I am thinking is adding a structure for the clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades but, again I don't know if this is the right direction i need to be headed in. If anyone can show me the right direction or links to resources that can help me accomplish this. I would be most appreciated. Thanks.
