What is the probability that a five-card contains the ace of hearts?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]P(E)=|E|/|S|[/tex]

[tex]P(E_{1}\bigcup E_{2})=P(E_{1})+P(E_{2}) + P(E_{1}\bigcap E_{2})[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

The number of ways to choose 5 cards from 52*the numbers of ways to get an ace from five of those?

[tex]C(52,5)C(5,1)[/tex]
