Do any of you mathematicians know what the odds of a repeating double in Pick 3 are? MD had 090 last nite and 090 this morning. Just wondering what those odds are.

If it wasn't impossible I wouldn't even consider it!

      Same with me, I don't know, but I do know that one draw doesn't have anything to do with any other draw so all 1000 straight pick 3 numbers have an exact equal chance to come out at any time, that is at all times, if that is true then notmyday is right and the answer is 1/1000, but as notmyday said, I am not a mathematician.

        I am european, I do not know the game very well but I suppose the game is made by 3 independent drawings, balls from 0 to 9, each one, correct?

        In that case we have 1/10*1/10*1/10=1/1000

        So, 1 in 1000

          The Odds of a Pick 3 draw matching another is 1 : 999

          The Probability of a Pick 3 draw matching another is 1/1000 or 0.001 or 0.1%

            Ok jade, a single event now in 10 events, 7.8 will be in the central belt of the bell curve (Gauss) that is has a party other than those random sequences
              Jade how to discover in each loteriaspick 3,4,5,6 ... sequences within the result that are not random sequences? Binary system would be? thank you

              Thank you all for your replies. Kind of what I thought but the double threw me off a little.

              If it wasn't impossible I wouldn't even consider it!
