An airplane whose capacity is 100 passengers is to be chartered for a flight to Europe. The fare is to be $150 per person, if 60 people buy tickets. However, the airline agrees to reduce the fare for every passenger by $1 for each additional ticket sold. How many tickets should be sold to maximize the ticket revenue for this flight?

Hi. I play the lotto a lot, and have yet to win. How many combinations can I make with 6 numbers 1-53? I am trying to come up with a dollar amount so I know how much I would have to spend to guarantee a win. Thank you in advance. (I'm no good at math)
