You know the chances of winning a lottery ticket?

    Well, if you’re the guy who is going to buy it, you know that the odds are about 1 in 13,500.

    But when you get to the numbers, the odds get even more obscure.

    The odds for winning a three-digit lottery number are even more uncertain than the odds of winning an 11-digit number.

    So what are the odds?

    And what are these numbers?

    For the sake of this exercise, we’ll assume the lottery is going on Monday and we know the winning number is 637.

    The first number we’ll check is the chance of winning it.

    If we’re lucky enough to win it, we’re getting a 12.9 percent chance of getting the number.

    If the odds aren’t too high, we can say that we’re about a 1 in 7,500 chance of being awarded the number at the jackpot.

    But wait!

    There’s more!

    If we get a second chance, we are actually getting a chance to win the lottery number if we have the correct amount of money.

    So, we get 12.7 percent.

    That’s a bit better.

    But what if we’re a little bit unlucky?

    Then the odds drop to a 3.9 in 14,000 chance.

    That means that if we win a lottery number that’s between the two numbers, we have a 25 percent chance.

    But there’s more to this than odds.

    We know that we have about a 10 percent chance to get a number between two of the numbers.

    That number is the number that is closest to 637 in odds.

    So that means that with a 637 chance, the number is only a 6.8 percent chance we’ll get the number we’re looking for.

    This gives us a chance of about 1.8 in 1,000,000.

    That puts the chances that a person would be awarded the ticket to about 1 out of 10.

    We can now calculate the odds based on the following formula: 1 out 10 = .00015 * .00011.

    So if you have a 3 in 10 chance of making it to the lottery, you’d have about 0.00001 in 10.

    That’s the math.

    This number, or this lottery number, is 1 in 17,200,000 and is the largest ever.

    The chance that you’ll get that ticket is about 1 or 1.7 in 1 million.

    But if you want to know the odds, just enter in your zip code and click the link.

    You’ll see the chances.

    Now, it might seem like you’re wasting time, but there’s a lot of math behind this.

    The chances of getting a lottery jackpot ticket are about 99.99999997 out of 1,0000,000 people.

    The likelihood of getting any of those numbers is 1.000000000000000 out of a billion people.

    So you could get a ticket for less than $5,000 for the most recent three numbers.
