From a deck of 52 cards I deal 3 cards each to 4 players. I get the five of spades and two other, non-spades cards. What is the probability that any other spade higher than five is dealt to any one of the other players (ace is the highest card)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Back in college it used to be one of the subjects I was good at but after two decades this problem is now above me. Can someone please point me to the right direction?
