Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a) 5 aces , there are 4 aces in a deck so probability of getting 5 aces is zero b) king queen and jack are face cards so total face cards= 12 no. of ways 5 face cards can be drawn= 12C5 no. of ways 5 cards can be drawn= 52C5 so probability of drawing 5 face cards= 12C5/ 52C5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0number of ways to get 5 face cards is \[12\times 11\times 10\times 9\times 8=95040\] number of ways not to get five face cards is \[\dbinom{52}{5}95040=2503920\]and so ODDS in favor of getting 5 face cards is \[95040:2503920\] or \[396:10433\]
