there are 346 nonwinning tickets in the batch.
So the prob of all 4 being nonwinning is
(346/350)(345/349)(344/348)(343/347)
= .9549
or, if you know the C(n,r) combination topic,
it would be C(346,4)/C(350,4) = .9549
b) prob = (4/350)(3/349)(2/348)(1/347)
= .000000001
or C(4,4)/C(350,4) = .000000001
c) at least one winning ticket
= 1  prob(all losing tickets)
= 1  .9549 = .0451
d) at least one nonwinner
= 1  .000000001 = .999999999
