 On average how many times should any one pick three number fall in a 365 year span in one daily draw?

    I give up.  How many? 

    BTW, I don't plan on playing for 365 years.

      Perhaps BuzzsawAnn means a 365 days span, one year?

      Well, that number floats between 150 and 175 different numbers. (for example, AZ had 154 different boxed combo's last year (but AZ don't draw on sundays i believe?) and NY evening had 171 different combo's)
      Box, ofcourse...

      For straghts, the amount of numbers runs from 250 to 300.

      So, in theory, each number has a 1 in 1000 chance of falling, each day.
      Deviding it, the 1000 numbers, by 365 would bring it to 1 in 3 (approx) for each number.
      In real draws it's 1 in 4.

      And from the numbers' perspective, it's 1 in 1000, each and every day.

          sorry I meant 365 days in a year  so on average  a pick 3 number should fall at least once a year or 3 times a year ?

          No, on average, it should fall once every 3 years. (which it doesn't)

            Are you talking about "hitting" as a straight, or a box?

              One man's straight is another man's boxed. Any 3 digit number ABC is 9 different combinations when boxed you still get paid.

              I found this web site that lists every 3 digit number by date and state since at least 1998- some numbers in Il have fallen only one time some numbers have fallen in the year for various states about 135 times. I think htis is a high average.

                No 3-digit numbers have 9 different combinations boxed.  There are 3-way (a double), a 6-way (all 3 digits are unique), and a triple.

                  The number permutations for any 3 digit number where the the digits are different is what I am refering to. If you box your choice you will get paid in IL.

                    I have 28 states in my db, for 2005 that makes 9755 draws.

                    Best boxed numbers:

                     NbrTimes 
                     134 78
                     679 77
                     047 74
                     457 74
                     125 73
                     238 73
                     239 72
                     359 71
                     468 71
                     257 71

                     

                    The worst numbers, any way, are 8 triples and 2 doubles. (001 and 226)

                    Best, straight

                     NbrTimes 
                     134 23
                     271 21
                     509 21
                     257 20
                     528 19
                     704 19
                     860 19
                     832 19
                     888 19
                     889 18

                     

                    That's for 28 states only... worst straight was 139 and 880

                    Exactly what was you point?

                      How exactly do you get to 9 different combinations with ABC?

                      ABC
                      ACB
                      BAC
                      BCA
                      CAB
                      CBA

                      and...?

                          BTW, a Mersenne prime is defined as a prime number that is 1 less than a factor of 2.

                          2^2=4, and 3 is a Mersenne prime.

                          2^3=8, and 7 is a Mersenne prime.

                          2^4=16, but 15 is NOT prime as its factors are 3 and 5.
