The price of a ticket?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

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

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.
