 If I had 28 numbers and wanted to put them in every possible triplet how would I do it?

 In another way,

How many triplets are possible from 28 numbers?

 Is there a wheel possible from this arrangement? How many tickets would in be in say in a fantasy five game?

    I'm no genius but triplets usually refer to numbers with three of the same digits like 222 or 333 and they don't exist in a fantasy five game which is a pick5 game.  The numbering system used by lotteries only have 10 digits 0-9 so only 10 triplets are possible.  In a pick5 game with 28 numbers there are 3276 combinations of three numbers possible and each combination of 5 can include up to 10 of them.

    There are wheels for pick5 that will guaranteed 3 of the number in one line if 3-5 of the 28 numbers are in the winning numbers.  The size of the wheel depends on the guaranteed.  If it's based on 3 numbers hitting rather 5 of the numbers hitting then it will be bigger.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *
