Math Help - Probability help!!!

1. Probability help!!!

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

2. That would be 52 choose 5 or 2598960

You can look at it this way 52! /(5! * 47!) =2598960

3. 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.

Thus, $\left( \begin{array}{c} 52\\5 \end{array} \right)=2598960$

4. Thanks!

Thank you 4 taking the time to help me. I appreciate it so much!!
