The Multiplication Rule for Independent Events states that if several events, A1, A2, ..., An, are independent, then **P(A1 A2 ... An) = P(A1) * P(A2) * ... * P(An).**

What does this mean? **50/50**

Applied to coins, A1 can be the event of getting a heads on the first flip of the coin. A2 is the event of getting a heads on the second flip of the coin. An is the event of getting a heads on the nth flip of the coin. Since the probability of each event is 1/2, the probability of getting ** two heads in a row** is 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4. The probability of getting

There are many examples of **50/50 events** in the Pick-3 game such as **High/Low, Odd/Even**. __Any__ group of numbers that you can balance into equal likely events are **All** subject to this normula. Applied to Pick-3 it opens up many opportunities.

Keep this in mind the next time you notice __7 or 8 Even digits__ stacked on top of each other...... or you see 5 or 6 draws or __continuous string__ of equally like events. (2 even and 1 odd digits) etc.

** "Chances Are"** You won't have to wear a silly grin after the next draw.... if you play with this normula in mind and

Use these numbers below to figure the odds on any __50/50 event__ in Pick-3. When ever you see a string of MO'(mostly even) numbers or ME's (mostly even) since there are 500 of these each....that's a 50/50 opportunity to use the rule.

If you use the 10 column Sums chart it is half odd and half even.......it is also half high and half low.
