153 -> 40,769
154 -> 40,446
198 -> 13,094
202 -> 10,870
176 -> 27,978
134 -> 41,332
136 -> 41,781
155 -> 40,095
209 ->   7,528

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.
