Sometimes filtering out 270 numbers, or over 1/4th of the 1000 chart, ......is a mistake.
Every once in a while it makes real good sense. Like in a HIGH ODDS (probability) situation like today in Midday Gerogia's Pick 3 game.
Why? Because they just had their 4th Double in a row yesterday.
Odds never change ......and in all games not just GA. (before someone ask) the odds are always 27% everyday we would have a Double.
The probability of us getting 5 doubles in a row is .......remote. What is the probability of getting 5 doubles in a row?
Conditional probability of dependent events:
"Probability is when common sense ......meets math. "
So, multiply 1/27 *1/27 & 1/27 .........and do it 5 times in a row to get the conditional probability of those 5 dependent Events.
= Rare baby! To the extreme......
*Many folks confuse the words Odds and Probability ...and it's really not a good thing to do if you play the lottery a lot........or want to play long term. LOL
The only real failure .....is the failure to try.
Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much.
Odds never change .....but probability does.
