For instance:

Here the total number you want to play is (12) and wish to make bet of 6 numbers, the calcul will be:

12x11x10x9x8x7

____________________= 924 so it means 1 chance among 924 possibilities with

6x5x4x3x2x1 one combination or ticket.

For instance: one combination of 6 numbers with the 6/49 means :

(49x48x47)(46x45x44)

________________ = 110,544 x 91,080]]>

4 if 5 among 12 = C(12,5) / ( C(5,4) * C(7,1) ) = 792 / (5 * 7) = 22.63

3 if 5 among 12 = C(12,5) / ( C(5,3) * C(7,2) ) = 792 / (10 * 21) = 3.77

3 if 4 among 12 = C(12,4) / ( C(5,3) * C(7,1) ) = 495 / (10 * 7) = 7.07

I recently donated and got access to WinYourLottery from BobP. Great information! Some of the information contains odds calculations. I need some help understanding how some of the numbers are calculated.

Using the following assumption that I wheeled 12 numbers

Odds of winning a prize when winning numbers are among your 12

5 if 5 among 12 = 1 in 792.00

4 if 4 among 12 = 1 in 99.00

4 if 5 among 12 = 1 in 22.63

3 if 3 among 12 = 1 in 22.00

3 if 4 among 12 = 1 in 7.07... [ More ]]]>
