BobP has posted a very interesting and helpful Pick-3 sums and roots chart at lotto-logix and he gives an example of how to use it. He suggests listing the last 18 draws and calculates their sums and roots. But the example shows only 17 draws. Why ?

Also, every root has an equal probability of comming up because there are 111 of each. Why restrict the analysis to 18 draws? The table of Pick-3 sums would be more useful if supplemented with the nominal frequecy for each sum, such as :1-3-6-10-15-21-28-36-45-55-63-69-73-75-75-73-69-etc.

It would be interesting to see a table of sum and root frequencies for the longest running Pick-3 game. One can calculate the likely number of missing integers after N draws with the formula 0.999^N, which yields 368 missing after 1000 draws, 135 after 2000 draws, 50 after 3000 draws, 18 after 4000 draws, 7 after 5000 draws, 2 after 6000 draws, 1 after 7000 draws and 0.3 after 8000 draws.Thus it would be unrealistic to expect all numbers to be drawn in any state lottery run less than 22 years.

BobP is invited to comment.

    I didn't make the chart or the strategy for how to use it, Rose a fellow poster here and at maybell.com made it.  When things are free from people trying to help others you don't have editors and researchers triple checking the work.  Get from it what you can, improve on it and share.

      Hello

      You all post  too many numbers  to play.....cost too much.  when I  do post  I only used few numbers.

      I won this week on 167 .....I had bough only that number ....I only won  80$  cuz i play the 176  on 1$ st and 1$ box

      I should have post the number but  I bough my ticket at 6.30 pm and was too late when i came home

      At this time I am playing  631  369    and  i am sure one of those number will come very soon

      Last year  613 came in on the last day of June  in Florida and  I  did cash in

      Good luck  to all

          Yeah I see what you are saying. I can't afford to play that many numbers either.

            There is a easy way to follow two roots and

            hit;it has been posted,however getting the correct combo for the  root sum can be tricky
