Take a deck of cards (with indexed position from 1 (top) to 52 (bottom)) and perform a perfect riffle shuffle, such that the top card (1) is still on top and the bottom (52) is still on the bottom.
Amazingly, if you perform 8 such riffle shuffles you will return to where you started.
Obviously, cards 1 and 52 do not change position. Most of the cards will go through some cycle and land back where they started only after 8 riffles.
But two cards will simply swap position back and forth each shuffle.
What are they?
If you throw in the two jokers, you will have 54 cards. How many riffle shuffles will it take to get this deck back to the starting positions?
