I go to this same convenience store every day and I ALWAYS get a qp that is one number off. For instance, today I got 064 straight-boxed, and it was 476. It is maddening to me. Does anyone know the chances of being 1 number off? Now a couple of times I did get it boxed right from this store and once even won straight box. I am wondering what the odds are of always getting 2 numbers right.

    Odds of one position correct is 1 in 10

    Odds of two positions corrrect is 1 in 100

    Odds of three positions correct is 1 in 1000

    If only you could tell which two positions are correct.

    A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!
