    Ok so let's take the Euromillions lottery. A player must select 5 numbers between 1 and 50 and then an additional 2 numbers between 1 and 11 ( yes, the numbers 50 and 11 are inclusive).

    There is a total of 76,275,360 possible ticket combinations.

    What are the chances of more than one person drawing the exact same combination if 76,275,360 people bought tickets?

    What would be the average number of duplicate tickets purchased?

    Please include the math in your answer so I can learn how you calculated your answer.

    Thanks,

    Rich.
