I am conviced that the answer provided in the key is wrong:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the probability of drawing 2 or 3 jacks from a standard deck of cards without replacement.

P(3jacks or 2jacks) = P(3jacks) + P(2jacks)

= P(J)P(J|J)P(J|(J|J)) + P(J)P(J|J)*(3!/2!)

= 1/5525 + 72/5525

= 73/5525 != 0.217

What am I doing wrong? And 0.217 seems absurdly high.
