The foward lexi for PB last draw is 1401046 and the reverse lexi value is 3721119
I don't know if you caught eariler post where I explained the reverse lexi so I will
go over it again very briefly. The foward lexi value is the normal value for the set
and I call it the foward just to seperate it from the reverse.
Power ball has 5006386 possible sets so if looking at the first four digits of the lexi
we have 0000 to 5006. The last drawing 04-16-32-37-46 = 1401046 and if we were
to strip off the last 3 digits and replace them with 000 we have 1401000. If we check
the number set for 1401000 we get 04-16-32-35-45. Notice that using only four digits
of the foward lexi we have the first 3 numbers from the winning set.
Next let's do the same thing for the reverse lexi = 3721119. If we again replace the
last 3 digits with 000 we have 3721000 = set 18-32-37-46. Again notice that the
last 3 numbers are 32-37-46.
We now have the three numbers 04-16-32 for the foward lexi 1401000
we now have the three numbers 32-37-46 for the reverse lexi 3721000
giving us all five numbers for the draw using just 4 digits from each. What we are doing
is just ignoring the last 3 digits and just setting them to 000 because many times the first
four will produce the first 3 numbers. The reverse lexi is a bit hard to calculate and even
harder to understand but the program makes all the calculations needed so you are left
with just running the program like you would the P-3 or P-4 programs, For my 5-39 the
first three digits will often give the first 3 numbers but not always. The reason for the
program at the beginning was this. Since my 5-39 has 575757 sets the highest first 3
digits is 575. but the back 3 could be any value from 000 to 999 unless the first digit was
greater then 4 which would make the range 000 to 757. This led to the creation of the
reverse lexi so that by using the first 3 digits I would have the same odds as I had using
the foward lexi. The first 3 digits for my 5-39 reverse lexi are 575.
Notice in the list below like a odometer on older cars that the right most number changes each
line but the digits to the left change much less often, in this example you could play 000001 to
000010 and even higher for the foward lexi and still hit 4 of the 5 winning numbers. There are
73,815 sets in a 5-39 that all start with the number (1). This means that if you were trying to
use the lexi value to find the first number in the set you could have used any value between
000001 and 073815 as a lexi and been correct for the first number. This same thing holds true
through out the whole universe of sets. The number of sets between certian values changes but
even as you reach the higher numbered first numbers it has less of a positive effect but it still
exist. What this means is that it is possible with some draws to miss veery value and still get
the correct number or numbers. Some returns will produce the first 3 numbers while some will
only give you 2 or in some rare events only 1 but that is not very often.
01-02 03 04 05 lexi = 000001
01-02 03 04 06 lexi = 000002
01-02 03 04 07 lexi = 000003
01-02 03 04 08 lexi = 000004
01-02 03 04 09 lexi = 000005
01-02 03 04 10 lexi = 000006
01-02 03 04 11 lexi = 000007
01-02 03 04 12 lexi = 000008
01-02 03 04 13 lexi = 000009
01-02 03 04 14 lexi = 000010
01-02 03 04 15 lexi = 000011
What the reverse lexi does is group the sets in a similar manner but like below
This allows the same type of selection to be used to select the last 3 numbers and again you can
miss up to all four values and still get the correct numbers. I would not count on missing all 4 and
still getting the last four numbers but it could happen. Using the programs can help you in a number
of ways. Lets say that you don't know what group to set as the first position but you think you can
set enough options in the lexi program so that it returns a close value. Lets say that your setup
returns the 3 sets below.
If you though that your settings were correct you could set group A to Play and since all the second
numbers are 14 and up you could block group B. Another option would be to use the wheel and put
01-02 in the first cell and set it to 1-1-1. Do this same thing for the reverse lexi and set the 5th cell
to the first numbers returned for the reverse lexi and set it to 1-1-5.
If your setup for the foward and reverse are correct but the 3rd numbers don't match you could use
the first 2 numbers from each in the wheel cells 1-2 4-5 and let the program fill in the third number
with all the remaining numbers between 2 and 4 for the third number in the sets. Lots of ways this
can be used but it's a bit hard to hit both, I often can hit one or the other but have hit both and goten
four of the 5 numbers for my 5-39. These two programs could be considered lottery system by them
I have already added them to the BG program and they will be in the next release. I have also added
similar programs to help with the groups and digits.
