    Default Re: arrays of card objects

    The loop is filling an array with new Card objects.
    Break the complicated statement inside the for loop into separate simple statements.
    What does the % operator do? Add a println to print out the results of count %13 and the results of count/13. The output will show you what the code is doing.

    What are the contents of the two arrays: faces and suits? How many elements would each array have?
    What would be used to create a new Card object?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
