1. If you can, please give me a hint on how to solve this question or tell me how to solve it. The question is:
From the letters A, B, C, D and E, two different letters are selected at random. Find the probability that these two letters are A and B.

Also, what does this P(T>4) as opposed to this P(T<4) ?
2. So you have P(AB) and P(BA) as a start (you need to find these)...and you don't need perms and coms
Spoiler:

P(AB) = 1/5 (there are five letters) x 1/4 (you've removed one so you now have 4 letters) = 1/20Then P(BA) = 1/5 x 1/4 = 1/20So the probability of getting A and B is 1/20 + 1/20 = 1/10

P(T>4) means T is greater than four
P(T<4) means T is less than four
