**Reiny**, Sunday, December 1, 2013 at 11:22pmAs I stated in my previous reply to the same post ....

Number of ways to draw 6 numbers from 20

is C(20,6)

= 20!/(6!14!)

= 38760

so prob(winner) = 1/38760

**Tina**, Sunday, December 1, 2013 at 11:28pmOkay, but I was wondering would you use the same method (combination) for this question

If a person buys 1000 LOTTO tickets, what is his probability of winning the grand prize?

if the prob of winning by buying 1 ticket is 1/38760

then the prob of winning with

1000 tickets is

= 1000(1/38760)

= 25/969
