Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are 6 numbers chosen and 15 possibilities for each, so by the counting principle there are \(15^6\) equally likely outcomes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you pick six, and assuming order does not matter there are \(6!\) ways to arrange them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so your probability of winning on any one ticket is \[\frac{6!}{15^6}\] and if you do it fifty time i guess you have fifty time the chance of winning
