The probability of getting a full house in Yahtzee,
here is my answer: (6C1)(5C3)(5C1)(5C2)=3000
but from different sources, the correct answer is 300

Since a probabilty must be between 0 and 1, neither of those is correct! Did you mean "the number of different ways"? In any case, it is impossible to tell what you did wrong since you didn't post what you did!

Sorry I meant that the numerator I got was 3000 as in 3000/7776
where the correct answer is 300/7776
