Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm confused as to what is the probability of rolling 4 of a kind in one roll, in Yahtzee. I'm thinking its simply C(6,2) * C(2,1), which gives a probability of [tex]\frac{30}{6^5} = \frac{5}{1296}[/tex] . However, most of the sources I have seen regarding this outcome give a probability of [tex]\frac{25}{1296}[/tex] , which is five times greater than what I have. What is the correct way to go about this?

Thanks a ton
