Okay so here is the question

----------------------------

What is the probability that a Bridge Hande (13 cards) contains:

a) 4 spades, 5 hearts, 3 diamonds, and 1 club

b) no spades?

c) a void? (at least one suit that is not represented)

-----------------------------

Now I think I answered the first one correctly, here it goes:

-----------Answers-----------

a) (13C4 * 13C5 * 13C3 * 13C1)/(52C13)

= 0.00538779

b) now im not sure for this one but (is it correct?)...

(39C13)/(52C13) = 0.01279094804

c) I thought that the answer to this would be the same as b) since one suit was not represented in b)

Well thanks in advance to anyone who responds with some input, I'm not great at this stats stuff, and our prof is not giving great notes :S.
