 There are four type of cards  clubs (♣), diamonds (♦), hearts (♥) and spades (♠)  each have 13 cards

 13 * 4 = 52 

 Probability  


(13(4; 2)12(4; 2))/(2!)44  =  0.0475 

Regarding any doubt plz let me know I will be happy to help you.

Thank you for your answer, but I already know the probability.  I am needing to know the odds.  I can't seem to get it.  As the question stated, the probability is 0.0475, but how do I figure the odds?  Like 5 : 1 odds?
