The price of a ticket?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Repeat Answer!? from #4

With a Maximum Selection of 21 Groups of 6 Balls (Using the Best 21 Balls) Which equals 21 Tickets at 1 Pound or 1 Euro Etc. Per Ticket.

There is no reason to prefer one ticket over any other. There is no maximum ticket.

But there is a Mathematical Way of Improving your Chances when Buying 21 Tickets and Arranging them in an Optimal Way!

That is What this Thread is about! Now Who is the Lucky Brainy One that can Find it! smile

Hi;

All the tickets have the same odds. Arranging them does not help.

I do not agree. If you think you have a solution then post it.
