A lottery question 2002-03-25 From Noel:I want to take all numbers in a Lotto game from 1 to 45 and ditribute them between 9 boxes each containing 5 numbers. Each number is used only once. What is the probability that I derive the correct combination of 5 numbers in the draw? What is the probability if I take a systems game and now distribute 9 numbers into each of 5 boxes? Once again, the numbers are used only once. Can you explain what formulae are used and how the answer is derived? Is this a distribution or combination problem? Or is it a combination of both distribution and combination? Answered by Andrei Volodin and Penny Nom.
