In a 52 card deck if you choose 3 random cards such as any King any queen or any ace(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(12 cards in total) what is the probability of being able to draw at least one of these cards with 3 attempts and not replacing a drawn card. Basically my question is regarding the odds in Texas Holdem of choosing 3 random cards and flopping at least one of them. It seems to me that on the first card the odds of success are 12/52 and then on the second draw if not successful would be 12/51 and then 12/50, but I just don't think I know how to do the math for the problem. Please Help.
