The probability ofdrawing *just* one club in the 52 draws = 1/4 * (3/4)^51

The probability of drawing two clubs — which fits the "at least" description — in 52 draws = (1/4)^2 * (3/4)^50

The probability of drawing three clubs in 52 draws = (1/4)^3 * (3/4)^49

Or you could go from the opposite direction, 1 - probability of drawing no clubs.

Does that lead you to a formula?

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
