Hi, I'm new to Lottery Post, looks like a great community. I hope that it can contribute to some lottery wins lol.

I have a question, I'm sure it;s been asked before but after numerous of searching mostly google searches I can't find an answer. Using any number between 1-44 and only picking 6 at a time, how many number combinations are in the sum of 130? What formula do I use to get this? Is there anything I can do in excel to help? I know there are numerous of combinations but I am just looking for the number.

 

 

Thank you!

    92,578. I use johnph77's charts. Or you can do a brute force calculation. Not sure if there is a shortcut formula.

        For brute force calculations, you code them yourself or alter one someone else has written. Either way, you have to know a little programming, though.
