P( As Ah Ks Kh ) = 1/52 * 1/51 * 1/50 * 1/49 as is every combination of definite cards (1/6497400)
Multiply this by 24 since it doesn't matter what order they are dealt
and Multiply it by 6 since it doesn't matter what combination of suits you receive.
Answer = 144 chances in 6497400 = 0.0022%
By the same formula, assume you want exactly As Ah Ks Qh
multiply by 24
multiply by 12 as you now have double the chance since AKs AQh is different to AQs AKh
Answer = 288 possibilities, 0.0044%
AAJT is exactly the same 0.0044%
AAPP double suited now has 11 times as many combinations as AAKK
Answer = 0.0244%
SInce the hands are independent possbilities the odds can simply be added.
