Blackapple has several good systems going which use root sum to find remaining numbers for either pick4 or pcik 4.  What exactly IS a root sum, and how does one arrive at a root sum?  The rest may come easy, but before I know what I'm looking for, it's all so confusing!!!!

Thanks for any and all help!

e.g. draw: 318

LDR (last digit root): 2
3 + 1 + 8 = 12 --> only last digit, gives 2

Root: 3
3 + 1 + 8 = 12 --> 1 + 2 = 3

Sumdigits: 12
3 + 1 + 8 = 12

Blackapple - how are they applied? Is there a list of numbers you should play when a particular root, root sum comes up?

Or better yet, how do you determine which root sum is going to be hitting?

By getting tomorrows newspaper today?

An age old question that still goes unanswered!

Unless of course you have special powers and can predict future events.

Premium members can use Inspector 3 to see which root sums are "due" for any state lottery game, across any stretch of time.  You can also input your own customized list of numbers and it will give the breakdown.  Or you can have it automatically load the predictions posted by LP members, and it will show the breakdown of root sums.

Inspector 3 is a very handy tool to answer questions like yours.

Thanks Todd! I will definitely look into that. Seems like an interesting system. I guess after I finish my research on another project, I will tackle the root sums.

As a standard member, you get 20 free tries of the Inpsector system, which should be plenty of uses to figure out if it will be useful for you.
