    As Ed McMahon would say, "You are correct!Big Grin

    In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
    Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

      Not to be offensive but why is this important?

        Maybe he was just checking his odds calculator.

        I checked and mine and it indicated: 

         possible combos of 2 / 56 numbers = 1540
         possible combos of 3 / 56 numbers = 27720
         possible combos of 4 / 56 numbers = 367290
         possible combos of 5 / 56 numbers = 3819816

         * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

          When studying a game I like to study its inside out, and around, and out of the box.
