Morning all,

This is 1 of 2 questions that I've been burning up gray matter over.

 

Has anyone looked at the "skip" numbers and been able to construct a formula or write code to approx. the next "skip" number?

An example beginning from the most recent to the oldest "skips":

3, 7, 11, 1, 41, 3, 3, 12, 1, 18

Where the next "skip" is 3. So the string would look like this:

3, 3, 7, 11, 1, 41, 3, 3, 12, 1, 18

 

Thanks for any thoughts or assistance with this idea.

          The only DUMB question is the one question you DID NOT ask...

    KnuckleHead,

    Here is a download link to a zip file that I created for Mega Millions and Power Ball draw history.

    There are 2 tabs that calculate the skips for the Sums.  You can use the same idea for any game Pick 3, Pick 4 etc. Positions, Pairs

    If you have any questions let me know
