The numbers are small but I found another problem.  Still working with the 2nd step of the example and using the calculator that came with windows, the last 4 digits of the 12 string is off by one.  instead of getting 9083, I got 9084.  What am I doing wrong?

Hello wpb!

Still at it,I see,haha. Yes,maybe you missed this when I showed it-----

 

 

I tried dividing 53 by 2.882---

Scientific calculator gave me these--

183900069396

638098783470   

221408321814

 

My 12 digit gave me the same results for the first and last set of numbers but the middle one gave me

638098783469

Exactly what you are saying,off by 1 number. Again,if you want the exact numbers you will probably have to buy that 12 digit calculator.Wink

    instead of 9083 I got 9084 plus 1 from what I should have gotten.  in your example, the scientific calculator gave you 470 and your 12 digit gave you 469, once again the scientific example is plus 1.  I just thought I may have missed a rounding factor in the scientific method somewhere on the second calculation.  If I have time today, I will look for the 12 digit calculator.

      You're right, the 12 digit calculator rounds off every result to 12 digits or less because of its limits and when you hit the equal sign it divides that result by 2.882 while the scientific calculator divides the number with all the shown digits by 2.882.

      If you want the same results on the scientific calculator as the 12 digit calculator, you will have to simulate those limits by re-entering the number as a 12 digit number that rounded off and divide it by 2.882.

        Thank you for your system lottolaughs.... just a suggestion if you find this really takes off!  It looks like you are essentially working with pairs.  So for every pair you come up with a set of 12 numbers.  So instead of doing the exercise every draw, you may want to make a chart which corresponds to the 99 pairs (00 pair doesn't work!).  Just a suggestions!

            There are 55 pairs, not 99.

                For instance 01 is a pair, but 10 is the same pair when you are working with pairs.

                  Thanks for the system lottolaughs. It worked on my first attempt.

                  Hit on PA Midday Daily Number with the system. 

                  Midday draw  (234)  hit boxed!

                  Thanks again. I will be tracking results, hope the trend continues!

                    While I agree with you Britney, when working with pairs in general. Working with lottolaugh's system the two pairs are not created equally.

                    For example the 45 pair....using lottolaugh's system dividing 45 by 2.883 will give you a set of different number when dividing 54 by 2.883.  So you really have 99 pairs for her system (again 00 does not work).

                      I missunderstood.  I thought you were talking about pairs in the results, not the input.  Sorry.

                          Excellent method I'll be testing it out in NC & a lil in VA (on the border and all)

                          Any who, I just wanted to justify everyone's difference in numbers:

                          The 12 digit calculator truncates numbers after well 12 digits which means it chops them off without rounding...

                          The calculator on the computer does not truncate therefore when you hit the equals sign again it gives you a more precise result but incorrect because neither you nor the calculator on the computer truncated the rest of the numbers for the next press of the equals sign.

                          If you are using EXCEL you can set up your spread sheet to a certain precison and tell it to truncate X Many Numbersbefore doing the next calculation.

                          Well, hope this helps... Pogo Smile

                             hey lottolaughs, i tried it.  ok. i used tenn mid and eve (saturday) using 2.882 and narrowed my field

                            down. missed by one number on 2 of my tries.  then went back and used 2.772 just for fun and

                            it worked. didn't play it but it worked.  my question is should i keep using the last 2 draws 1 mid

                            and 1 eve, or should i seperate mid and eve.  if you have time could you post tn so i can compare

                            mine to yours. this is weird but i like it.  thanks for your kindness and insight .  kid

                              Hurray!Bravo on your system...Just realized I don't have a calculator at all. I gave them all away. I will be hitting up Office Depot tomorrow to do some backtesting in NC. Good luck to all..
