I have a deck of cards. What is the chance if I draw 5 cards, all of them are a distinct type? (Ace,2,3,5,6,7,8,9...King)

I believe you are describing a "flush".....5 cards of the same suit

 

We  have  three types

Royal Flush  - 4

StraightFlush - 36

Flush  - 5108

 

Probability  =   [ 4 + 36 + 5108 ]  /  C (52,5)  ≈   0.00198  ≈  .198%
