    All of the same kind, either all odd or all even.

            I really thank you for helping to sort things out, we'll hopefully get to the jest of all this...

              I've seen that term used in pick3 and pick4 posts to exclude combinations with doubles and triples, but unlike the phrases all odd or all even, it doesn't have a clear universal meaning.  I've seen lots of words or phrases used that are defined differently by different people, so you really has to ask the question of the writer that used the word.  When Todd proposed a dictionary of lottery words, there were many definitions posted for words that I thought had simple definitions.  For example the word gap, to me the numbers 36 and 37 had a gap=1, but others said 36 and 37 were next to each others and their gap=0 or no gap at all.  Key numbers, to me key numbers were numbers used in every combination in a wheel, but others said key numbers were a group of numbers where some of the group were in every combination of a system.  So I guess "pure number" meant what ever the writer meant for it to mean.
