You're taking a sample of 12 cards from a deck of 60 and you want to know
the probability of getting exactly 5 cards of type A, of which there are 20
in the deck. Sounds like you need the hypergeometric distribution; se the
"Defects Problem" thread recently published in this newsgroup.

AFAIK, this group is not meant to provide answers to your homework
questions!
