tntea when I take 179/.03 and the squared I DOn't get 77.244 and so on I get 17.3205 and so on, how did you get 77.244?

77.24420150837645021546699365165

I did it three times and this is what I got

I pushed in  179   then the  /   then the  .03  then the equal sign.. then square root.

Are you multiplying the answer after the division by itself?   I believe that could be the problem.  I could have worded that wrong... That would be sqaring.. We are looking for square root.   Sorry for the confusion.

Try it and let me know

Here I took the  179/.03  then hit squareroot.

Looks like double 7s will appear in MI this coming week.   I would use  177 677 577

We know that 077 has been hot lately.   So 577 would be my first choice in MI.

Yes, but in your instruction: under or says square not squareroot!

Yes..  mistake on my part.   I couldn't edit it.

Could be something to watch.   Things could appear  serendipity.

To clear up the confusion maybe you would be kind enough to post corrected instructions. Thanks You,

I think you just worded the OP wrong...

Above you have 179/.03

3% of a numbers is arrived at by multiplying the number by 3%, not dividing it by .03

3% of 179 = 5.37

so please let us know if this is what you are saying, take the last draw, take 3% of that number, then hit sq root?

If the number was 123, we would go 123 X's 3% = 3.69

Sq root of 3.69 = 1.9209372  (hand calculator)

Is that it?

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

The SquareRoot is 3% of the number needed to find your winning combo.

Sqroot =  3% of number

So you take sqroot/.03 to find that number

I believe this is the correct way listed above...

I used my PC's calculator & put it right up on the screen beside the post & followed the steps. The results are the same!

Thanks tntea for sharing your info.

Now this is hilarious.  Because when I put into my calculator here on the desk 179/.03 I get

5966.66666666

C'mon...all calculators are supposed to function the same way.  What's going on?  Or did someone officially change our traditional arithmetic functions and no one bothered to tell me?

You forgot to press the sqrt after getting the 5966.66666666.

It's like this:

179/.03=sqrt (square root √)

The result: 77.24420150837645021546699365165

Thank you for clarifying this method Laverne...I had 3 calculators in front of me driving me nuts. I decided to use my computer calculator like you did, followed your instuctions...and bingo!!! I hit the jackpot. Thanks!

OK, I see how you got at it now, but I disagree that the square root of a number is 3%.

What's the sq root of 25? 5, right?

5/25 = .2

5 is one fifth of 25. or 20%.

9 is the sq root of 81. 9/81= 11.11 or 11.11% of 81.

There is no constant percentage for the sq root of a number.

I never said the sq root of a number was 3%
