A state lottery involves the random selection of six different numbers between 1 and 44. If you select one six-number combination, what is the probability it will be the winning combination?
A) 1/10,000,000
B) 1/1,000,000
C) 1/7,059,052
D) 1/508,257,440
yeah second question from me i missed class days =S.
Just would like some imput on how to solve not the answer.
yeah i am going to do that tomorrow but this quiz thing is due tonight by 11 59 haha. I am looking through this chapter of probability and there is neither of these notations that you gave me is there anyway you could explain. To me the question seems really simple I am trying a bunch of different things with 44 and 1/6 and stuff and getting no where.
You have 1/44 of a chance for each number and there are 6 numbers what does your C mean?
If this is a quiz question with a due date then it most likely counts towards your grade. MHF does not help with such questions. See rule #6: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...hp?do=vsarules
I don't see how you can do a quiz if you have missed the work that it tests. One of the notations WILL be somewhere in your textbook. I suggest you Google
Combinations
if you are unable to find this material in your textbook.
