# Simply Scheme Project – Scoring Bridge Hands

Accidentally skipped over this project earlier and it was mentioned in the poker hands project so I am doubling back to do it. Full description at link. For this post I’m just quoting the descriptions of the subprocedures and tests.

## `Card-val`

Write a procedure `card-val` that takes a single card as its argument and returns the value of that card.

## `High-card-points`

Write a procedure `high-card-points` that takes a hand as its argument and returns the total number of points from high cards in the hand. (This procedure does not count distribution points.)

## `Count-suit`

Write a procedure `count-suit` that takes a suit and a hand as arguments and returns the number of cards in the hand with the given suit.

## `Suit-counts`

Write a procedure `suit-counts` that takes a hand as its argument and returns a sentence containing the number of spades, the number of hearts, the number of clubs, and the number of diamonds in the hand.

## `Suit-dist-points`

Write `suit-dist-points` that takes a number as its argument, interpreting it as the number of cards in a suit. The procedure should return the number of distribution points your hand gets for having that number of cards in a particular suit.

## `Hand-dist-points`

Write `hand-dist-points`, which takes a hand as its argument and returns the number of distribution points the hand is worth.

## `Bridge-val`
Write a procedure `bridge-val` that takes a hand as its argument and returns the total number of points that the hand is worth.
I liked AnneB’s `suit-counts`:
