Can lottery be won by buying 27 tickets Two mathematicians claimed
According to NDTV report, Manchester mathematicians David Stewart and David Cushing had discovered a way to win the lottery. The reality is that victory cannot be guaranteed with this method. However, he claimed in his study that at least 27 tickets can be purchased to win the lottery.
The author associated with the study said that people participating in the UK National Lottery buy tickets of their choice from six different numbers between 1 and 59. He said that during the draw, 6 are selected from sets 1 to 59. The lottery is won for the person whose lottery number matches at least 2 of the 6 numbers.
On this basis, mathematicians identified 27 tickets which can win the lottery. Researchers took the help of finite geometry in this work. Research revealed that to include 59 lottery numbers in your tickets, you would need at least 27 tickets.
Mathematicians may have declared their formula as a guarantee of victory, but it is not yet clear how many people won tickets by adopting this formula.
