matches as A(i) and the expected value for n numbers picked as E(n)."

E(40)? what's a(20) , a(21), etc. ? also i think the question is not complete , given data is not sufficient (for eg. with what (and how many ) numbers the chosen numbers are matched )

Re: game of KENO ???

I'm assuming for the moment that you know how to calculate the probabilities for the numbers of matches. I suspect what the author is calling "E(40)" is the expected value of your winnings for this 40-choice version of the game, not the probability of up to 40 matches (which happens only a little sooner than the heat-death of the Universe... ;) ). Is it the case that the other problem (which I'm guessing is related to basic Keno) asks for "E(20)" ?
