wouldnt it be 3/25?

no, not so simple, because each time you select one, there is one less to select

the first choice has a prob of 5/25 = 1/5

the second has prob of 4/24 = 1/6

and the third choice has a prob of 3/23 (doesn't reduce)

so 1/5*1/6*3/23 = hmm... the 3 and 6 cancel, leaving a two in the denominator...

1/(60*23) = 1/1380
