24 + 23 + 22 + 21 + . . . + 2 + 1 =

This is the sum of all the cards in the deck. This sum has to be evenly divided by the numbers of piles, so divide this number by 6, and that is your answer.

but what about the quantity of cards in each pile? figuring out that each pile adds up to 50 is the easy part!
