1. ## lottery math

question 1.
if you buy 1 ticket in the uk lottery your odds of winning are
1 in 14,000000 , if you buy 2 tickets your odds have been cut in half to
1 in 7,000000 .
ive been told this by a few people , how is it possible to lose 7,000000 combinations

its 2 in 14,000000 isnt it?

question 2.
how often would i win the lottery if i played once a week ?
i think the answer would be
once a week , 52 weeks a year

52 / 14,000000 = about once in every 260,000 years on average ?
is this true

and is that not the same as 1 in 7,000,000

is this true
Once in 14,000,000 weeks which is nearer once in 270,000 years

3. question 1. so your saying 2 in 14,000,000 is the same as 1 in 7,000,000 , the two of them look
so different to me

question 2
on average 1 win in every 270,000 years ! thats it im not playing anymore!

question , so if i played twice a week but i played 2 different lines of six numbers
104 times a year , 104/14,000,000 i would win 1 in every 135,000 years ?

if i played one line of 6 numbers twice a week (104 times a year)then it would be halved
to 1 in every 135,000 years on average
