Technically speaking the difference between 1 and 10 million and 0 in 10 million is .... uhm ..... one.

Ouch. I guess I was awake in class after all. Hey, Puna. Tell you what. When we meet I want to buy you 0.0000000055865921787795 of a pint.

Hmm... you say 1 + 10,000,000 - 0:10,000,000 = 1

I could be mistaken, but I bet some of your customers from the Marshall SFC may disagree with that statement.

The odds of winning Mega Millions are calculated as

_{56}C

_{5}*46 = [(56*55*54*53*52)/(5*4*3*2*1)]*46 = 175,711,536

So the odds of winning with one number are 1 in 175,711,536

or the probabilty of winning with one number, expressed in decimal form, 0.000000005691146...
