If you are dealt a 5card hand from a standard deck of 52 playing cards, what is the
probability (rounded to 6 decimal places) that you are dealt at least 4 hearts?

total of hands = C(52,5) = 2598960
at least 4 hearts > 4 hearts or 5 hearts
prob(at least 4 hearts) = ( C(39,1)*C(13,4) + C(39,0)*C(13,5) )/2568960
= .011224489
or
= .011224 correct to 6 decimals
