wait I think it's 8c2 times 8c2 ....
Yes it is.
I figured it out....
a deck has 52 cards, 12 face cards and 4 aces are removed, from these 16 cards 4 are chosen, how many combinations are possible that have at least 2 black cards.
The answer is 1302
I get 154?
What I did was,
there are 8 black cards so,
8c2+8c3+8c4=154
I could swear I did this right.
