In a 5-card hand from a 52-card deck, how many ways are there to have 4 aces and 1 club?

Update:

Why would you look at those that are not clubs? I am confused

    Well in this case it depends, if yo count the ace of clubs to the clubs or not.

    The other guy supposes that since you have drawn the ace of clubs you already have your four aces as well as one club with the first four cards. Now you need one more card, which should not be a club. Therefore you have a total of 48 cards left (four aces have been taken) and out of them a total of 12 are clubs (2 to King), which means there are 36 other cards.

    So if you want to have a non-club then you have 36 possibilites.

    If you consider the ace of clubs not to be a club then you have a total of 12 ways.

    That help a little???

    there is only one way to have 4 aces and you have one more card which cannot be a club (you already have one) of the 48 cards left, 12 are clubs, so 36 are not.

    36 ways.
