*How many straight poker hands are there (not straight flush) from a deck of 51 cards with the queen of spades missing? A is high or low.*

I know the answer is 9435, but I want to know why. I'm not sure how to approach this problem.

Any help?

It is probably easiest to start with a full deck of 52 cards, then remove all the straights containing the queen of spades.
