Please help! This is a Combinations problem.
In a standard deck of cards, how many 4card hands are there that contain at most 1 heart?
I keep getting 118,807 but the real answer is suppose to be 201, 058. I always get confused with card questions. Can you help me?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can choose one heart in 13 ways and for each of these you can choose 3 nonhearts in \[^{39}C_{3}\] ways. You can choose 4 nonhearts in \[^{39}C_{4}\]. So the answer is \[13 * ^{39}C_{3} + ^{39}C_{4}\]
