I just made this problem up so please tell me if it doesn't make sense. If you have a deck of cards, how many ways can you have 3 jacks in a hand of 5 cards? *edit* I mean different hands of 5 cards that contain 3 jacks Would it be 49*48*3*2*1? Or 4*3*2*49*48? Something else? I'm just trying to think of things they could ask, thanks!
