Pool Digit Combinations 2018-04-18
From Jacob:
I need to know all the possible 3 digit combinations from the following pool of digits: 1st pool (1,2,3), 2nd pool (4,5) and the 3rd pool (7,8,9,0). Each pool has to be represented in the combinations.
The numbers can be repeated as long as they are not of the same set. Example for not repeating: 123 is ok but not 321 or 231,132,213, etc.

The question is somehow related to Mike's but the difference is the digits are allocated into pools. Your help can assist me solve a mystery. Thanks.

I need the list/group for a raffle that would contain the combinations for a 3 digit (000-999) daily number. There would be 100 tickets sold with 10 3-digit numbers from each numerical group beginning from 000's, 100's 200's, 300's,...900's. No duplicates/replacement. What would be the list of possible combinations of each group of 100 tickets, keeping each different group/list of combinations in separate blocks of 100 tickets without duplication. So I could use 1 list of 100 this year and the next list of combos next year and so forth. Please help!

Example: 000,197,245,367,445,569,618,777,842,964

What would be the possible lists of each 100 tickets? Thank you
