A lottery game advertises a jackpot of $41 million. The chances of a ticket having the winning numbers are 1 in 7.1 million. If Betty buys 10 lottery tickets, what are her chances of winning?

Please help me. Thank you

With ten tickets, the chances of winning are ten times higher than with one, or one in 710,000.
