Default Can anyone help me with my question

Hope someone can help

I have a game that I run and im trying to gather statistics on how easy it is to win on an average week

here is the info




In each section of the game there are a 15 possible combinations.
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
