I have narrowed a Pick 2 game of Keno down to 9 possible numbers.

How many combinations are there of 2 numbers in a filed of 9?

It should be 9X9=81 total combinations

That's correct Teamprofit....For some reason I did 2 x 9, instead of 9 x 9. . . (not thinking maybe?)

Thanks for getting us back on track.

Yes, 81 including doubles if that game has doubles otherwise it would be fewer, I am not sure, but without doubles maybe only 72.

In Keno since each number can only be drawn once. it can't be 81 (9X9) so start with 72 (9X8). And because 1-9 is the same as 9-1, 2-8, 8-2, etc., divide 72 by 2 and you'll have 36 two number combos using 9 numbers.

Dr. San was helpful enough to show all 36 combos and if you use A to I instead of 1 to 9, you can substitute your 9 numbers for each letter.

Hmm, isn't the answer 9 x 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1?

But I don't think is this 100% correct, hmmm!

"Hmm, isn't the answer 9 x 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1?"

They are only using two number combos and want each number with each of the other 8 numbers, it's 9 times 8 divided by 2. The reason 72 is divided by 2 is because in Keno the combo 1-9 is the same as the combo 9-1 and 2-8 is the same as 8-2, ect.

The first number is paired with 8 numbers and since the second number is already paired with the first, it's paired with the 7 other numbers. The third number is already paired with the first two so add 6 more combos; your example should be 8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1=36.

Yes, 81 including doubles if that game has doubles otherwise it would be fewer, I am not sure, but without doubles maybe only 72.

If you're playing front pair or back pair, 81 would be the correct number using 9 digits.

Let's say you're positive the digit "1" will be drawn in your next pick-3 drawing but don't know in which digit position or how many times. You could play all the box combos using the digit "1". There are 90 doubles and 120 single box combinations in pick-3 games but you only want the combos using the digit "1". You multiple 10 times 9 and divide that by 2 or 45 combos which include all the combos with "double 1s". There are 9 double combos to add (00, 22, etc.) bringing the total to 54 box combos. For an extra buck, play 111 and now you have all 55 combinations using the digit "1" at least one time.

Including the one triple, each Pick-3 digit appears in 25% of all box pick-3 combos.
