The probability of this would be 4(10c4/40c4) = 840/91390.
And lets say another way of winning this game would be to get a hand of all red cards. ex.(6 hearts, 4 diamonds, 3 hearts, 8 diamonds).
The probability of getting this hand would be (20c4)/(40c4)= 4845/91390.
Since the 2 ways of winning overlap each other, you could get the same hand from both calculations so what should I minus the equation of P(4 red cards) by to find the probability of winning? How should the end equation look like?
