Excuse me? The value of an Ace is either 1 or 11. It is assumed to be
1 if making it 11 would take your total over 21, but otherwise it is
your choice. If you have an ace and a six then you have either 7 or
17.

The function that returns the value of your hand should return a list of
possible values (there can only be two possibilities, so perhaps a list isn't
the best choice).
