what is the probability of getting a royal flush in poker?

I realize it is 4/C(52,5), but what are the combinations for the numerator?

  • MATH - ,

    Don't assume everybody knows what a royal flush is, I had to look it up

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_rankings#Straight_flush

    There are 4 possible royal flushes.
    the number of ways to choose any 5 cards
    = C(52,5)

    so the prob of a royal flush = 4/C(52,5)
    = 4/2598960
    = 1/649740

    that sounds sooooooooooooooooooo hard .
    i'm glad i don't have 2 do that !!
