    There are 12 face cards in a pack of 52, so 40 non face cards. 8 cards are dealt.
    probabily 2 FC(face cards) means = you need 8 from 52; (2 from 12FC and 6 from 40NFC) therefore

    P(2FC and 6NFC)= [12C2 * 40C6]/52C8
    I used a calculator and the answer came to 0.336638189 =0.337

    The C is for combination
