    Re: number of cards

    In a deck of cards, there are four suits. Each suit contains cards numbered from one to ten, and there are three court cards.

    Isn't it 1-13;

    Ace to 10 = ten

    Jack, Queen, King = 3 +10 = 13.

    You could say,

    There is more than one of each card.

    There's four of each card, one for each suit.
