Below is a table that shows the combinations if you were to cover 2(the minumum), 3 , 4 ,5 ,6 games from any section See the table below. 15 X 15 X 15 X 15(as there ARE 4 SECTIONS = 50,625 POSSIBLE combinations of playing the game here are some possible results that the game produces from the criterea given 3 games from Section 1 (3 POSSIBLITIES) 4 games from Section 2 (6 POSSIBLITIES) 2 games from Section 3 (1 POSSIBLITY ) 3 games from Section 4 (3 POSSIBLITIES) 3 X 6 X 1 X 3 The combinations are 54 4 games from Section 1 (6 POSSIBLITIES) 4 games from Section 2 (6 POSSIBLITIES) 3 games from Section 3 (3 POSSIBLITIES) 3 games from Section 4 (3 POSSIBLITIES) 6 X 6 X 3 X 3 The combinations are 324 Given my rule that if only 1 selection reaches the criterea how does this apply to the possible combinations. It seems to make the game easier to win This week for example 5 games from Section 1 (10 POSSIBLITIES) 1 games from Section 2 (? POSSIBLITIES) 1 games from Section 3 (? POSSIBLITIES) 5 games from Section 4 (10 POSSIBLITIES) What is the value of ? above for working out the possible combinations Hope this makes sense Thanks Macman
