a)Required probability= \frac{1}{27} \times (\frac{42}{47} \times \frac{41}{46} \times \frac{40}{45} \times \frac{39}{44}\times \frac{38}{43})
=0.02054
b)Required probability= \frac{1}{27} \times 5/2 (\frac{5}{47} \times \frac{4}{46} \times \frac{42}{45} \times \frac{41}{44}\times \frac{40}{43})
=0.00277
a)Required probability= \frac{1}{27} \times \frac{5 \times 4 \times 3 \times 2 \times 1}{47 \times 46 \times 45 \times 44 \times 43}
=0.000000024
