Assuming you're talking PowerBall here; the numbers are slightly different than MegaMillions. The math:

Given this, the numbers falling most often into a given position for every possible draw are:

1-14-27-40-53.

There is no number which will fall into the bonus ball position more often than another; all have equal chances.

I was refering to odds while you were refering to the probability.And they are different.

But for odds,Its the  short-term statistics.odds are the inverse of probability so if a formula has calculated the probability, you divide one by that number to get the odds.

The most commonly played number combination is 7-14-21-28-35*42. If you won with that number, you would share the jackpot with many, many other players.And Actually,many jackpot drawing results are around 7 -14-21-28-35*42.

I didn't do the test as it looked too hard for me. IQ is an interesting topic. I remember years ago I impressed myself when I got into an airplane and picked up a Reader's Digest and did their vocabulary test and got them all right. Well according to that test I would have qualified for MENSA; I chose to interpret it as having a good day with a spelling test. I think it must have been the fear of flying factor which sharpens the brain.

Talking about flying I was in a single engined light aircraft in the outback once and as we flew over the landing strip the rotten engine stopped. Well I'm one of those people who under such circumstances just mutters expletives - which I did in profusion - but after what seemed an eternity of deathly silence - Lordy, Lordy the engine roared back to life.

Later on I found out this is the way they signal to the people below to come and pick them up. Nobody bothered to tell me.
