  1. 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
