#### Solution Preview

The probability of an event E is

P(E) = n(E) / n(S),

where n(E) is the number of outcomes of that event, and n(S) is the number of outcomes of the sample space.

In this problem, the event E is a bridge hand of 6 of one suit, 4 of another, and 3 of another; n(E) is the number of ways this could occur; and n(S) is the ...
