The Florida Lottery is made up of the numbers 1-49. My mother has observed that the winning numbers many times are prime numbers.
1.List the prime numbers from 1-49:
2.What is the probability of a prime number being picked randomly from the numbers 1-49?
3.Is the probability of picking a prime number greater than picking a number that is not prime?
2. Count the number of prime numbers under 50 and divide by 49.
3. 1 - the above answer is the probability of picking a nonprime number.
I hope this helps.
