Say the probability for incedent E to occur as P(E).

P(4 Aces)=4/52*3/51*2/50*1/49*5=1/54145=0.001847%(4 sig. fig.)

P(3 Aces + 2 Jacks)=4/52*3/51*2/50*4/49*3/48*10=1/108290=0.0009234%(4 sig. fig.)

P(3 Aces + Pair)=4/52*3/51*2/50*48/49*3/48*10=6/54145=0.01108%(4 sig. fig.)

why multiplying 10?

Think about when two jacks and three aces are filled into 5 boxes, how many arrangements can there be.

or by binomial distribution,
