Code:

```
1: 1 (26/52)*
2: 11 (12/51)** 12 (13/51)***
3: 111 112 121 122
4: 1112 1121 1122 1211 1212 1221 1222
5: 11122 11212 11221 11222 12112 12121 12122 12211 12212 12221
6: 111222 112122 112212 112221 121122 121212 121221 122112 122121 122211
```

What is probability that 3 will be hearts and 3 will be diamonds?

1 = hearts : 2 = diamonds

* 26/52 chance to draw 1 or 2 at 1st draw: make it a 1.

** 12/51 chance that 2nd card is a 1

*** 13/51 chance that 2nd card is a 2

...and so on

Is that the proper way to "attack" this?

My 1st time dealing with "probability trees"; doesn't seem like much fun!!

I got probability of 1/250 by simulation...trying to confirm it...
