      Thanks grass34! How are you figuring out the math for the total combination in each sum?

        Posted numbers are accurate for 5/56 without the bonus ball. If you wanted to include the bonus ball number in the sums (5/56 + 1/46) the results are radically different:

        191 - 1494370
        153 - 1235057
        154 - 1749272
        198 - 1309852
        202 - 1196446
        176 - 1774569
        134 - 1309852
        136 - 1364791
        155 - 1762452
        209 - 993377

        TL - 14190038

        I used a VBasic program to wend through all possibilities and count the given sums - no math involved.
