      Thank you diamondpalace. 

      I realized that I had worded that wrong after I posted it, but no one was responding anyway, so I didn't bother to change it.  I meant the total of all the numbers in the line. 

      Most recently, Mega Millions came out with numbers that, when combined, totaled over 235.   I wanted to know what was the highest ever combined total?  (still don't know if I'm wording that right.)  I had a certain total in mind and was wondering if it were even possible to reach it within the confines of the game.  But any game would do, so I generalized it.

        Since the matrix changed to 5/56 on 06/24/05 the sums of the 5 MegaMillions numbers have varied from 55 to 238.

        FRI 07/04/08 - 01 03 12 19 20  +28  =55
        TUE 08/07/07 - 36 41 50 55 56  +09  =238
        TUE 08/22/06 - 03 04 05 07 36  +16  =55
