Morning All,

I'm working on breaking apart numbers and reducing them to their root value. My question regards any number containing a "0" (zero). IE: "0" (zero), "10" and "20", etc.

The 10 for example: 1+0 = 1   I got that.

1-0 = 1?

-OR-

Would you make the "0" a "10"? Then the equation would become 1-10 = 9?

In other words, when a "0" (zero) is present, as in the "10" or the "0", how is it handled? When you think about it, it matters greatly in mathematical calculations. Calculating it incorrectly would mean playing the completely wrong numbers...

Would appreciate any comments. Thanks all.

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

make the "0" a "10"

Why would you "make the '0' a 10" ??

01 - 10 - 19 - 28 - 37 - 46 all of them are "1".

02 - 11 - 20 - 29 - 38 - 47 = "2"

03 - 12 - 21 - 30 - 39 - 48 = "3"

04 - 13 - 22 - 31 - 40 - 49 = "4"

05 - 14 - 23 - 32 - 41 = "5"

06 - 15 - 24 - 33 - 42 = "6"

07 - 16 - 25 - 34 - 43 = "7"

08 - 17 - 26 - 35 - 44 = "8"

09 - 18 - 27 - 36 - 45 = "9"

If playing 6/49 LOTTO, select 10 & 19 from "1" and only 1 other number from the rest.

10 - 19 = "1" / 12 = "3" / 15 = "6" / 27 = "9" / 34 = "7"

The "expectancy" of 6 numbers to appear in a drawing like in the above example with 2 numbers from any number ( 10 - 19 which is "1" ) and 1 number from the rest, like 12 which is "3", 15 = "6", 27 = "9" and 34 = "7", is every 2.1 drawings ( 2.099 to be exact ).

If you divide all the combinations/lines of 6 numbers that 6/49 LOTTO has, which are 13.983.816 / 6.661.550 which are the combinations of the above example, you get to see how often you should expect a drawing of 6 winning numbers to appear with the numbers arranged like that; every 2.1 drawings.
