How many DIFFERENT 5-card hands can be dealt from a standard deck of 52 cards???

That would be 52 choose 5 or 2598960
You can look at it this way 52! /(5! * 47!) =2598960
What Ranger SVO is saying is that order is not important. For example,
ACE,TWO,TRHEE Spades is considered the same as,
TWO,THREE,ACE Spades. Thus, this is a combination problem.
Thank you 4 taking the time to help me. I appreciate it so much!!
