Counting

How many points would 3 sevens 1 eight and an ace be?

Count it

7, 7, 7, 8, A

7, 7, 7, 8 is three 15's for 6 points

7, 7, 7, A is three 15's for 6 points

7, 7, 7 is three pairs for 6 points

Total is 18 points

what is 4x5s in hand and jack turns up

I am not sure how to count the 5s

28 Hand

Four 5's with any 10-card on the cut is worth 28 points.

24 4 pts for the 2 (15') 8

24
4 pts for the 2 (15')
8 pts for the 4 (15's) off the J
12pts for the 4 of a kind

Re: what is 4x5s in hand and jack turns up

The turned up jack would have scored two points (heels) immediately, to the dealer, so would not be counted again in the hand count.

The hand count would be 28. With jack, there would be 4 counts of 15 = 8 points. With just the 5's, there are another 4 counts of 15 = 8 more points for a total of 16. Next, the 5's make four-of-a-kind for an additional 12 points. 16+12=28.

To make 29, the jack would have to be held in the hand with three of the 5's and the turned up 5 would have to be the same suit as the jack, for that "held in hand" jack to get the extra point for "nobs."

4x5 = 24 points because you have 8 points for the 5s then 4 doub

24 points because you have 8 points for the 5s = 15. then 4 doubles = 8 then 8 points for the jack +5. For a grand total of = 24 points. But if jack is same suit as the lead card played add one so 25 points for the nob

Completely Incorrect

Unfortunately, there is nothing in this post that is correct. Four 5's with any ten card is equal to 28 points, not 24. Look at the fives using suits to form 15s. Red, Red Black. Red, Red Black. Black, Black Red, Black Black Red. Those four equal 8 points, then the 15's with the ten card equal another 8 points. Then the quads (6 pairs) equal 12 points. 8+8+12=28. Additionally, you cannot get 25 points in a hand. Ever. It is not possible. It doesn't matter what the 'lead' card is.

Scoring four 5's and any 10 card

28 Points:

8 Points for four J-5s
8 Points for the four 5-5-5 triples that total 15
12 Points for the six pairs in four-of-a-King

Number of points for 5's in hand and Jack is cut card

5,5,5,5,Jack is four 15's for 8 points
5,5,5,5 is four 15's for 8 points
The cut card being a Jack, that's Nibs for 2 points

Total points 18 (feel free to recheck me but that's what I got)
