I understand your idea for formating a wheel but it is hard for me to create the sets of numbers I want by that technic.

I don't know exactly the sets of 3 different numbers it will end up being but I want the sets to be the smallest possible of 3 numbers with a guarantee of one 3 numbers containing 2 winning numbers out of 5 drawn in a pool of 36 numbers.

Please if you can provide those sets of 3 numbers, I will appreciate it.

Thanks.]]>

your 10 Numbers: A B C D E F G H I J

your balanced wheel of 6 sets of 5:

A J C F E

B I D G J

C H E I A

D G F I B

F B G D H

as you can see each of the letters appear 3 times throughout the wheel

you can have them in any order you like. All you need to make sure of is that each number appears equal number of times

so if your wheel is to contain 8 sets of 5 you'll need to make sure that each number appears 4 ti... [ More ]]]>

let's say you have 10 numbers and you want to wheel them in sets of 5

in a balanced wheel those 10 numbers will appear equal number of times

so if your wheel has 6 sets of 5 numbers, each number will have to appear 3 times

6 X 5 = 3 X 10

any experts here? Correct me if I'm wrong, please! ..and thanks]]>

I am confident that, there are maths experts and experience lottery players here to help me create my own balance wheel to generate a minimum possible set of 3 different numbers with a guaranteed one 2 numbers in 5/36 game.

For example, in Pick3 lottery, there is some magical 8 different 3 numbers in which if there is no repetition , one of the 8 numbers will have one 2 winning numbers.

I hope you guys understand what I mean and help me out.

Thanks,]]>
