Thinking more about it, I think the term combi(4,2)*combi(25,2)/2 is better taken as two terms: 2*combi(25,2)+combi(25,2), the first recognizing the possibility of two numbers with one or the other being repeated three times and the other only once, while the solitary combination being the equal distribution of two chosen integers.
