Can someone explain why they say there are 1326 texas hold em hole card combinations?

The math I am doing is 1/52 × 1/51 = 1/2652

Why is the 2652 divided by 2?

its because the combination of the same two cards is counted twice in that math, AsAh and AhAs is counted as two combination but they are actually same hand
