Golf for 6 - 2 three balls 2016-02-01
From Andy:
We are shortly having a golf holiday in Phoenix. There are 6 people playing 6 rounds, so we will play in 2 three balls. Is there a combination of pairings that ensures everyone plays with each other the same number of times. Many thanks for your help ! Andy

The 3-ball lottery 2009-12-09
From Lee:
A friend and I are trying to calculate the odds of choosing the winning numbers in the 3-ball lottery (3-digits 0-9). We realize that there are 720 Permutations and 120 possible Combinations of said lottery, but we're having trouble figuring how to determine the "odds" or probability of winning (1) when order matters, and (2) when it doesn't. Please help!
