there are 346 non-winning tickets in the batch.

So the prob of all 4 being non-winning 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 non-winner

= 1 - .000000001 = .999999999
