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

39-38-37-36-35

39-38-37-36-34

39-38-37-36-33

39-38-37-36-32

39-38-37-36-31

39-38-37-36-30

39-38-37-36-29

39-38-37-36-28

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.

01-14-17

02-16-20

02-22-22

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

selves.

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.
