So i did the problem again and got a different answer this time. I'm pretty sure this is the right way to do it!! First, there are 52C5 = 52! / (47! 5!) = 2,598,960 different possible five-card poker hands. There are 13 possible ranks for the three cards of a kind, and each case leaves 12 possible ranks for the pair. There are 4 ways to select three cards of any rank (differing in which card is omitted). There are 4C2 = 6 ways to select a pair of any rank. So, the number of different full houses is 13 * 12 * 4 * 6 = 3,744 The probability is therefore 3,744/2,598,960 = 6/4,165 = about 1.44*10-3
