### Reverse Faro To Order Packet

Posted:

**April 8th, 2017, 11:40 am**Imagine five cards in order, A, B, C, D

The cards are randomly mixed, then using a sorting procedure, the packet goes back into A, B, C, D order.

Let's say we assign a binary number to each of the cards:

A 00

B 01

C 10

D 11

Is there some sort of binary sorting procedure that could be used to return a random mix of the four cards to ABCD order?

This wouldn't be a real Reverse Faro where every second card is upjogged and then pulled out, it would be one where you run through the cards upjogging those required for the formula, pull them out, drop them on top then repeat until the cards are in ABCD order.
