SORRY, but with all these algebraic mumbo-jumbo threads that 98% of us don't understand - what they are and how they work, let alone how they might pertain to lottery choices, I thought I'd post a tongue-in-cheek thread.........

 

Have a good day everyone.

      If you don't like what you see, point your eyes someplace else. I will not stop. Thank you.

              you're right though, 2 + 2 isn't necessarily 4 when:

              When one of the 2's is imaginary, then it's 2 + 2i.

              When one of the 2's is hyper-infinite, I = 1 / 0, then 2 + 2I.

              When the 2's are a color, then 2r + 2g = 2y or 2r + 2b = 2m or 2g + 2b = 2c.

              nice observation.

                nice observation.

                Big SmileThere actually is a 2+2 Method called Grandma's Two Plus system

                This was taken directly from the book. (which I have no idea since it no longer have a cover or back - old and dogeared) I use the chart that came it and it is a section of a complete book. 

                The method used to calculate this system is easily expressed. We begin with the number two (2), then add 2 plus 2 which equals four (2+2=4); finally, we extend this equation to include one last factors and place them together.  Subsequently, we are left with the number two hundred forty-six (246).  This integer is the basis for our Two Plus System.  As you can see, if we add 246 to one we now have 247 as a total 246+1=247.  If we add 246 to 247 as a total our new total is four hundred ninety-three (246+247=493).

                When this pattern is repeated for five levels we can see the best possible three-digit combinations that are likely to appear following any given number.

                It is important to note that the Two Plus System ignores numbers greater than 999 since only numbers appearing in the one, ten and hundred columns are applicable for three digit combinations.  Therefore, while 246+246+246+246+246 =1230, our most probable two plus system combination is 230.

                 

                Then there's the chart that lists it from 000-999 Example

                000

                246

                492

                738

                984

                230

                  Have a good day everyone. 

                  Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG):

                          log(1 - DC)
                  N = ----------------
                         log(1 - p)

                  DC=Degree of Certainty
                  p=Probability
                  N=Number of Trials

                    Almost nobody understands what you are doing, judging by the lack of replies under most of your threads.

                    Give us some examples of what you are trying to convey so us simpletons might get a clue. 

                    It isn't that I don't 'like' what I see at all, I just don't understand how to apply it to the possibility of projecting

                    number choices, that's all. 

                    Plug some real numbers in and make some projections for tonight's Powerball or next week's Powerball, etc.

                        Patience is part of the equation.  Good luck on explaining all of facts given..  Giving examples of numbers and seeing proof that the system works is what most want before learning it.  Which is reasonable.  I consider the mathematic section here at LP is for those who are math minded..  It is good excercise for the brain..

                          You both have good points, and I apologize.

                          It's under the 'Mathematical' forums for a reason, I shouldn't even be here. 

                           

                          Do I have a clue what any of these posts mean ?  Nope.

                          Will I ever ?  Nope.

                          What is the level of my math expertise ?   I'd tell you, but you wouldn't believe me.

                          I can do 'computer math' as well as anyone, binary, octal, hex, that's about it.

                          I sure wasn't expecting anyone to hold my hand and lead me thru these equations, all I was

                          wondering is what the end result(s) are supposed to indicate.

                            There is math, and then there is gambling.  Math doesn't gamble, math quantifies.  Math gives us interest rates, decay rates, probability, the area of a circle, the speed of a train, the length of a footbal field. It can't predict the future, it may get us close, but it is not absolute, if it was, there would be no lottery. No matter what, every time you make a bet, it is a gamble.

                            gamble:1 a : to play a game for money or property b : to bet on an uncertain outcome
                            2 : to stake something on a contingency : take a chance
                            transitive verb
                            1 : to risk by gambling : WAGER

                            You got math and then you got quick picks, oh yeah, they win most of time.

                            My 2 cents. LOL jarasan US Flag

                              At this point in my life, most of my math skills are fairly rusty, but I find the presentation of mathematical analyses to be helpful, interesting, and challenging. Much thanks to JADELottery, johnph77, and all the other math adepts.
