This is a question relating to lotteries. Bascially everyone says that each draw is totally independant of each other. So the probability of generating a sequence of numbers each time is the same no matter what the numbers are. However for two draws, there must be a way to calculate the probability that the same set of numbers would be drawn a second, third, fourth... time. This event would be extremely unlikely yet still could occur.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is ther a value we can give to these unlikely occurences?
