I searched online and skimmed through 5-10 posts and still couldn't find a straight answer for how to calculate hand equity in poker. They all mostly just mentioned the 2 and 4 rule. I get that, but I'm wondering what is the calculation for equity.

I am assuming it is: (number of outs)/(remaining cards)? But my question is: what is the number for remaining cards? Logically I would think that it is 52-3-2 = 47...but I'm seeing everywhere the number 45. Where do the other two come from? Isn't it "seen cards"? Or idk I'm confused.

Hopefully that makes sense.

Thank you!
