The 6/53 is the chance of one of your numbers being the same

yup she's right nevermind its the opposite. sorry bout that

So the odds of getting one number right is 6/53 The odds of getting the second number is 5/52 (since you can't repeat the number the total amount of numbers decrease hence going from 53 to 52) The odds of the third number is 4/51 Fourth is 3/50 Fifth is 2/49 And the sixth is 1/48 To find your chance at winning you have to multiply all those together times that by 100 and that's your percent

Since I have to leave I'll tell you the number is 4.355x10^-6% and that is why nobody really wins cause there is pretty much no chance

Exactly but people still go for it since there is a sliver of a chance that they could win

@jcoury You should always consider your answers from a point of view of "is it reasonable" If there was an 8.3% chance of winning the jackpot we would all be millionaires by now
