JADELottery's Pick 3 H-Trac System

First, I'd like to thank Tenaj for giving me permission to borrow the V-Trac nomenclature to name this an H-Trac System. I've studied Tenaj's V-Trac System and it helped spark the idea for the H-Trac System.

Next, did someone say "8-Track", the "8-Track" is coming back...  no silly, it's H-Trac. My ex-wife said to me it sounds like 8-Track. Hang on folks, we're bring back the 70's. Well, anyway, the H actually stands for Hues Grouping. The Hues Grouping comes from my research into mapping the Pick 3 ABC number cube into the RGB color cube and transforming the RGB color cube into Hue, Brightness and Contrast. Brightness and Contrast are also referred to as Lumination or Illumination and Saturation. However, here it will be called Brightness and Contrast; something like your TV settings.

The H-Trac System came into existence from a couple of different things. Tenaj's method of segmenting the ABC number cube helped me with idea of segmenting the RBG color cube by Hue, Brightness and Contrast. I also got the idea from staring at my Rubik's Cube for hours. The way it's set in its holder helped with visualizations in my head.

The H-Trac System has two Parts: The H-Trac Numbers and The H-Trac Tables. The H-Trac Numbers have two Types: Normal and Absolute. The H-Trac Tables have two Kinds: Straight and Boxed.

We'll take this a few steps at a time. First we need to do some calculations to find the H-Trac Numbers. This is real easy, you don't need a mathematical degree and you don't need a supercomputer; it's paper and pencil type calculations. We need to find three numbers: The Normal Brightness Number, Absolute Brightness Number and Contrast Number. Take a Pick 3 number and find the biggest number or MAX number and find the smallest number or MIN number. MAX and MIN are used to find the numbers as follows:

1 - Normal Brightness Number

nB = MAX + MIN - 9

2 - Absolute Brightness Number

Take the absolute value of nB by removing any negative sign to make it positive.

In Excel you can use the ABS( ) function.

aB = ABS(nB) = ABS(MAX + MIN - 9)

3 - Contrast Number

C = MAX - MIN

 

Here's a few examples:

Pick 3MAXMINNormal BrightnessAbsloute BrightnessContrast
227MAX = 7MIN = 2nB = 7 + 2 - 9 = 0aB = ABS(0) = 0C = 7 - 2 = 5
304MAX = 4MIN = 0nB = 4 + 0 - 9 = -5aB = ABS(-5) = 5C = 4 - 0 = 4
808MAX = 8MIN = 0nB = 8 + 0 - 9 = -1aB = ABS(-1) = 1C = 8 - 0 = 8
878MAX = 8MIN = 7nB = 8 + 7 - 9 = 6aB = ABS(6) = 6C = 8 - 7 = 1
333MAX = 3MIN = 3nB = 3 + 3 - 9 = -3aB = ABS(-3) = 3C = 3 - 3 = 0
981MAX = 9MIN = 1nB = 9 + 1 - 9 = 1aB = ABS(1) = 1C = 9 - 1 = 8

These numbers are used to make two Types of H-Trac Numbers: Normal and Absolute. The Type of H-Trac number will be denoted by an 'n' and an 'a' on the right side of the number, example: -23n or 52a

A Normal H-Trac is assembled this way: nB C 'n'

An Absolute H-Trac is assembled this way: aB C 'a'

Each has the Brightness Number first, then the Contrast Number, and finally the noted Type of 'n' or 'a' at the right.

From the examples above, here are the H-Trac Numbers for each Pick 3 number:

Pick 3NormalAbsolute
22705n05a
304-54n54a
808-18n18a
87861n61a
333-30n30a
98118n18a

At this point you might think there are -99 to 99 Normal H-Trac Numbers and 00 to 99 Absolute H-Trac Numbers, with a total count of 199 numbers for the Normal and 100 numbers for the Absolute. Actually, there are not. If you were to go through all the Pick 3 numbers and found and sorted the H-Trac Numbers, you'd find there are only 55 Normal H-Trac Numbers and 30 Absolute H-Trac Numbers. Because the numbers are Grouped by Hues, the process of finding the Brightness and Contrast actually compressed the total Combo Count from 1,000 to just 55 for the Normal and 30 for the Absolute. Not bad for some simple paper and pencil work out. Whoa, is your pencil smokin' too?

Here are the complete lists of the Normal and Absolute H-Trac Numbers.

Notice on 2006-11-27, 28 and 29 the Normal and Absloute H-Tracs repeated three time in a row. Later, we'll use the H-Trac Numbers to find the Hue Grouping Combos in the H-Trac Tables so you can determine what Combos to play for the next drawings.

    Ok, here we go. Below are the H-Trac Tables needed to find the corresponding Hue Grouping Combos. The actual tables are fairly large and can be open in a separate window for reference. Just click on the images in the table to open the table.

        Very nice!  Thanks very much for sharing your H-Trac system.  Also a great example for others to show how you can put together some nice tables in the forums, IF you work with it (which you obviously did).

          Thanks,

          I also made some animations, but their too big for here.

          However, you can go see them at my Yahoo Site Briefcase.

          I'm working on some other animations and images to help with visual understanding of what is being done.

            Just a thought.

            If you see a string of consecutive (not consecutive combos) + and/or - in the group of Normal H-TRAK  look for the opposite to occur??  For example:  4 straight (-) values or 4 straight (+) values.

            12/7, 12/8, 12/9, 12/10

            12/14, 12/15, 12/16, 12/17

            12/20, 12/21, 12/22, 12/23

                  I'm working on that. It takes a fair amount of time to assemble the information. Plus, I have many other projects going on at the same time.

                    Using the H-Trac Tables requires three things:

                    1 - What H-Trac Number to use?

                    2 - Is the H-Trac Number Normal or Absolute?

                    3 - What Kind of play is going to be bet, Straight or Boxed?

                    Referring back to the WI Pick 3 drawings for 2006-11-27, 28 and 29, we could have played the Normal H-Trac Number of 09n for the next two drawings as a Straight. We need to find the Combos in the H-Trac Tables to find what group of numbers to play. Looking at the H-Trac number 09n, remember the way the number is setup, Brightness-Contrast-Type(Normal or Absolute). The H-Trac Number 09n is Brightness of 0, a Contrast of 9 and is Normal. First, refer to the H-Trac Tables posted below, click on the image that is under Straight and left of Normal. This will open up a separate window with the Straight Normal H-Trac Table. You'll refer to this table as we go along.

                    To find the Hue Group for 09n, look at the top of the table for Normal Brightness. Now, find the column 0 for the Brightness Number, next move down the left side in the Contrast column and find 9. Where the 0 Brightness column and 9 Contrast row meets is the Hue Group need to be played. You should have come up with these Combos:

                    009
                    019
                    029

                    097
                    096
                    095

                    These Combos should be played as a Straight only in the next drawing for our example. If you wanted to play Boxed then you'll have to bring up the Normal Boxed H-Trac Table. Those Combos would be like this:

                    009
                    019
                    029
                    039
                    049
                    059
                    069
                    079
                    089
                    099

                    These should be played as Boxed only in our example.

                      There are other methods of using the H-Trac System. I'll discuss those at a later date. For now, just work on using the H-Trac System to find the H-Trac Numbers and the H-Trac Hue Group Combos.

                        Here's something also for reference, the starting point of most of this.

                            Sounds very interesting, I will have to study these when I have more time.

                            Thank you. 

                            EXCALIBUR is no more that "Handle" is dead, gone.
                            Maybe sometime in the future I might come back as LANTERN again, but maybe not, if I don't come back as LANTERN in the future then I won't come back at all, but as I said there is no more EXCALIBUR.

                              this may be far out but is it possible for some lp genius to write this to an excel spreadsheet so it can calculate the 3 phases? just a thought.
