In how many ways can you pick five spaces (of thirteen), four hearts (of thirteen), three diamonds (of thirteen), and one club (of thirteen)? Then in how many ways can you pick such a hand?

In how many ways can you any thirteen-card hand?

Divide the former by the latter to obtain the probability.

(13C5)*(13C4)*(13C3)*(13C1) divide by (52C13)

i did it in my calc + it gave the write ans.
