    You have one too many zeros in your calculation.

    Factorial is nothing but multiplication.
    i.e 56! = 56x55x54x53x52x51x50……………..x1
    therefore the value of 56! is divided by 51! and 5! and then it is multiplies and subtracted with 1/46 then you get the figure.

    Hope this helps. to be honest its a hell lot os calculations.
    Suggestion:- Learn probability perfectly.
    For more info watch movie:- The 21. which is a real story.

    In the back of the megamillions ticket says 1 between 175,000,000 the chances to win the jackpot, more simple…

    It’s easy I won the Texas lotto 7 times.

    The Texas Lotto game actually has a much higher probability for winning, relatively speaking. In the Texas Lottery you select 6 from a field of 54. I think this is the multi-state Mega Millions game, though I suppose in Texas it is referred to as the Texas Millions.
    I like your vids btw, very clear and concise explanations. Hard to find in a Calc II instructor!

    I always say the numbers that are not picked in awhile will show up like picking 1.

    Correct! You choose a total of 12 out of 34. Of those 12, 7 ought to be correct to hit the winning number.

    Thank you for your quick response.
