I think my brain is freezing. I can't see how to get the answers to these questions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A poker hand is defined as drawing 5 cards at random without replacement from a deck of 52 playing cards. Find the probability of each of the following poker hands.

(a) Full House (one pair and one triple of cards with the same face value).

(b) Three of a kind (three equal face values plus two cards of different values).

(c) One pair (one pair of equal face value plus three cards of a different kind).

So for (a) i got [tex]\frac{C(26,2)C(11,1)}{C(52,2)}[/tex]. But im so lost. To much studying this week :S.

The answers in the back f the book are

(a) 0.00144

(b) 0.02113

(c) 0.42257

Can anyone help me out?
