When drawing four cards, where you do NOT replace a card before drawing another card, what is the probability of drawing "four of a kind"?

Can you show me the steps.

  1. well, there are 52 cards in the deck, 13 of each suit
    4 of each kind, like four kings
    so what is the probability of drawing four kings?
    4/52 *3/51*2/50 *1/49

    multiply that by 13 because it could have been four threes or four sevens or whatever
