  1. 1. there are 13 red cards, you want 5 of those
    number of hands with 5 red = C(13,5) = 1287

    2. there are 16 non-number cards ,
    number of 5 card hands from that is
    = 4368

    3. could be 4 different suits, in #1 we did the reds
    so in this case it would be 4xC(13,5) = 4(1287) = 5148
