Problem with a struct within a struct

P: 1
Hi I'm having trouble understanding how structs work ...

i have two structs ...

struct card{
int value;
string name;
}

and

struct deck{
int currentcardontop;
int decksize;
card cards[40];
}

My question is if I'm trying to access the "currentcardontop" and then find the "name" associated with that card from the card struct ... how would I go about doing that?

currently, I have something along the lines of:
struct deck ONE;

and then ONE.cards[currentcardontop].name .... it just seems really off to me cause of my complete lack of understanding for structures ... could someone please help me understand these things?
