You have to pick four balls, and *at most* three are red, then I would consider the case of selecting more than three - i.e. four red balls - as the number of cases you *don't* want, and subtract this from the number of total cases available.
(# ways to select 4 balls without replacement in which at most 3 are red )
= (# ways to pick any 4 balls) - (# ways to pick 4 red balls)
= 13 x 12 x 11 x 10 - 4 x 3 x 2 x 1
