General Mills is testing 13 new cereals for possible production. They are testing 6 oat cereals, 3 wheat cereals, and 4 rice cereals. If each of the 13 cereals has the same chance of being produced, and 3 new cereals will be produced, determine the probability that of the 3 new cereals that will be produced, 1 is an oat cereal, 1 is a wheat cereal, and 1 is a rice cereal. The probability is (Type an integer or a simplified fraction.)
