    I guess that could be a situation, but think of all the people who play the lottery how would you be able to find the probability you know.

    it is not really a matter of how many people play, it is a matter of how many possible numbers that can be played, vs how many you play

    for example, if you play the 3 digit number straight, you have to get all 3 correct there are 1000 possible numbers between \((0,0,0)\) and \((9,9,9)\) so the probability you win if you play one number is \(\frac{1}{1000}=.0331\)
