Hi.

You don't need to feel sorry for that

Well, at first you draw one of the numbers - there are 49 different balls;

you don't use this number again, so there are (49-1)=48 balls left

2. draw: you draw one number out of 48 => 48 possibilities for that

You do not use that number again, so there are 47 numbers left

3. draw: you draw one out of 47 (47 possibilities)

4. draw: one out of 46

5. draw: one out of 45

6. draw: one out of 44

So there are 49*48*47*46*45*44 different ways of drawing 6 numbers out of 49.

Edit:I made a mistake. Sorry

Plato gave the right answer: Because of

you need to divide by 6!, thusA lottery ticket is treated as a combination not a permutation, order makes no difference.

is the solution!
