Probability/odds of specific flop

How would one figure the probability of flopping a specific flop given hand:

me: QQ
opponent: AK
flop: QQK

What is the proper combination formula to figure out what the probability was to flop quads and my opponent to hit one of his over cards?

Thanks!
Dan

There are 6 possible combinations, QQ and one of 3 kings or 3 aces. There are 48*47*46/6 possible flops= 17296 and when divided by 6 that makes about 1/2883 flops.

Re: Probability/odds of specific flop

For at least one 6, 7 or 8 being on the flop (so 8-8-8 counts and 6-7-8 counts):

1 - C(40,3)/C(52,3) = 49.59%

Without knowledge of any cards, the number of players is irrelevant.
