What is the probability that at least two of a kind will be dealt in a hand of 5 cards using a standard deck of 52 cards? I tried to work this problem by using the idea of complement and first figuring out the probability that no cards would match. 1 - (52 *48*44*42*36)/ (52*51*50*49*48) which results in a probability of about 49%. I would like to have confirmation that this answer is correct or another way of solving the problem.---a puzzled math teacher(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
