That gives you #4, then just multiply by 15 to get #5, which you can divide into 1 to get the actual probability. Even easier would be to use Excel's COMBIN function or TI-84 calculator nCr function to get n choose k, where n = 75 and k = 5. Then do step #5 as prescribed.]]>LottoMetroReply #1

3) Find 5! (factorial 5, or 5*4*3*2*1) since you can choose the 5 numbers in any order = 120

4) Divide #2 by #3 = 17,259,390

5) For MM, multiply #4 by 15 since there are 15 different Mega balls = 258,890,850

Those are the odds. You can divide 1 by 258,890,850 to get the probability in decimal form. Note that if you compare #4 to the odds for 2nd prize in]]>LottoMetroAre correct probability calculation?
