Exact answer, he has not. Ran a smiluatio, he did.

I would sat that is not true. Not because I know he can solve the problem but because you would have to run a huge simulation to get that kind of accuracy.

It is loosely based on the square root. You would need about 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 samples. Much too much for a desktop.

No, it just suggests that he has the exact answer.

You are drawing these from 52 cards or 13?

That is what tripped up some people elsewhere. You are drawing with replacement.

Do you understand that there are 3 ways to draw 2 aces and a king? Know how to compute it?

Did you first not try any experimental methods?

Hi,

A simulation is also close, in J:

```
a=:4#(i.13)
sim =: 3 : '1=+/(?3#52){a'
(+/%#)(sim"0)1000000#0
```

≈ 0.001373

Yes, the answer's right.
