Hi!

I Think I Known the answer on this but I want to Make Sure!

I found a Post that Claims that!

Number 1 shows up most in winning number Jackpot combos!

I Would Like to test the Percentage of That Claim!

I Know that Percent means "out of 100"

50% means 50 per 100

25% means 25 per 100

I Just want to Make sure that when Calculating I am Dealing with Regular Math and not Lotto Math!

Thanks

Frank

     How do you differentiate regular math from lottery math?  I use regular math when I calculate lottery odds.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

      Good idea to quote the post and/or provide a link. That way er all know what we are talking about.

      No percentages are based on lotto math.

            Lotto = a type of game

        Math = mathematics, basically algebra

        Percentage notation: basically an integer value followed by %-sign

        Percentage value: small value divided by big value, multiplied by hundred and rounded.

        5%: 5 * 1/100 = 5/100 = 0.05 = .05

              Some members overdue it with percentages.  I think its a waste of time.  Better to work with recently hit numbers etc.

              How about them cowboys!

                How? Show an example of what you mean by saying overdue it. Otherwise it doesn't carry any weight. It's just like saying nothing.

                  Frank,

                  Sounds like you are looking for information on Benford's Law as it applies to the lottery.

                  This excellent post explains in detail.  Enjoy!

                    Maybe you should pay more attention to other posters, when they post facts!

                        Serge, did you read the thread in Tia's response?

                        In the Fla Mid digit 8 hit yesterday in P1 879. The digit 8 has hit 199 times. Out of those 199 hits, the digit 8 has hit at skip 1, skips 10-19, 34% or a total of 67 times. That is pretty close to Thoth's post.

                        The digit 8 has not repeated since 4/30/14, might be a good day for a repeat.

                            Just divide the total by the number of hits, lets say you have 37 jackpot drawings and 7 of those

                            have #1 as the first number.  7/37=18.89,  rounded it would be 19%

                            they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else
