I have a quick one.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An example in a book im reading says

(a) what is the probability of being delt four of a kind, that is, for aces, four kings, and so forth?

(one standard 52 card deck)

And they say "there are only 48 possible hands containing 4 aces; another 48 containing 4 kings etc. Thus there are 13*48 possible four-of-a-kind hands"

There are 13 different cards, A-2-10-J-Q-K, doesnt that mean there are13possible four of a kind hands? What am I not seeing here......

Thank you.
