Las Vegas Challenge Questions

In Texas Hold ‘Em Bonus, every player and the dealer are dealt 2-card starting hands from a well-shuffled, standard 52-card deck. If you make the Bonus bet ($5-$100) and both you and the dealer are dealt a pair of aces, you win 1000x your Bonus bet (!!!). What is the probability that this happens?
NOTE: Table games favour the house so in the long run you will lose money!

In Seinfeld: The Kiss Hello, Jerry finds out that 53 years ago his Uncle Leo kept $50 that he was supposed to give to Jerry’s mom. Jerry’s dad incorrectly calculates that the interest owed on $50 invested at 5% interest over 53 years compounded quarterly would be $663.45. What interest rate would have to be paid to earn $663.45?
