# Probability of Four of a Kind (percentage)

MichaelBartmess.Probability of Four of a Kind (percentage)

The **Probability of Four of a King (percentage)** constant defines the probability of being dealt four of a kind and is represented as a percentage. The** Four of a Kind **hand is a five card hand having four of five cards being the same value cards. For example:

- 4 of spades
- 4 of hearts
- 4 of diamonds
- 4 of clubs, and
- an 8 of spades

would be a **Four of a Kind **hand.

The number of possibilities of a** ****Four of a Kind** hand is the number of card values times the number of possible card values of the fifth card (the card that is not part of the four off a kind) times the number of suits of that fifth card could be. The total number of five card hands possible is computed as C(52,5) (see the constant defining number of five card hands), so this constant represent the ratio of number of possible **Four of a Kind** hands to the number of five card hands possible,C(52,5).
