How great are my odds of matching two numbers better than matching 3 numbers from the same pool of numbers.
In a 5/50 lottery, the odds of matching:
2 numbers = 1/14.93
3 numbers = 1/214.02
In a 6/42 lottery, the odds of matching:
2 numbers = 1/5.94
3 numbers = 1/36.74
The above are just examples, it depends on
- how many balls are in the lottery
- how many numbers are drawn.
