We have 10 cards, every time we draw 1 card at random, we keep drawing cards until we have completed the set of 10 cards. How many draws do we need on average to complete all 10 cards? Thanks!

Each card is about even money to be picked in about 7 tries. Thus about 15/16 in 28. The chances that there are no failures in 28 tries among the ten cards is about 15/16 to the tenth power which is about one half.
