$675 million will surely reverse my fortunes. Luckily I don't have to drive to Nevada like the Rodge to buy my 100 tickets.

1 in 292.2 million chance of having the jackpot * $2 = $584.4 million.
your entire purchase goes to the jackpot (not sure if this is true)
you get ~60% of the jackpot for taking the lump sum option
you pay ~40% of the remaining cash in taxes
winnings = ($584.4 + jackpot) * (0.60) * (0.4)
You need to win at least 584.4 million after all this to not have lost money on the investment.
584.4 = ( 584.4 + j ) * (0.60) * (0.4)
j = 1,850.6
Hence the jackpot would need to be at least $1.8506 billion for you to not lose money on that play.
If you take the 30-year inflated-adjusted annuity option, you don't lose 40% up front, so then you only need a $876.6m jackpot to break even. But that's depending on the fact that taxes actually remain at 40% for 30 years (protip: they'll probably go up) and that Trump hasn't gotten us all nuked within the next 8 years so..
P.S. I forgot to mention that all depends on you being the ONLY one to win. If you end up splitting the jackpot with someone else you will be completely fucked.
>odds of winning the lottery are astronomically low
>someone (usually) still wins it anyway
it makes no sense, but i can't help it
>Being this retarded
The question was:
If we buy enough tickets to play every single combination of numbers, guaranteeing that we will win the jackpot, how big will the jackpot have to be to show a profit?
It's an obvious question and has a simple solution. Sorry they don't teach you americlaps basic math
> thinking being born into a fucking miserable existence that you didn't ask to be part of where there is no reward (aside from the refractory period after cumming or doing something that makes your brain make happy chemicals) just work & pain - is a prize.
Fucking normie gtfo
sounds like an excellent way to lose money, anon
Cost of playing: 69 choose 5 = 11,238,513 combinations * 2 = $22,477,026
So a 1 in 26 chance of winning the jackpot
and a 25 in 26 chance of winning $1,000,570 (i.e. a loss of $21,476,456)
As with the $2 ticket you need a jackpot of $533,373,606 after taxes and lump-sum deduction to break even
>Nobody cares about probability and theoretical mathematics
>Bragging about your military made up of poor rednecks and minorities
That's why you're broke faggot.
Listen jiggaboon, your americunt war technologies are founded on the mathematical research of scientists imported from based europe
>about probability and theoretical mathematics
>being this much of a virgin
Wow how more pathetic can you get, yuropoor??
>That's why you're broke faggot. Listen jiggaboon, your americunt war technologies are founded on the mathematical research of scientists imported from based europe
If that's the case then why doesn't your shit country have a better military than ours? You're just mad because the US could rape your shit country by dropping a nuke and calling it a day
>Tfw our states are bigger than your shitty 50s military technology poor country
>but i could kick your ass!
Literally a nigger POV, you are retarded and should feel bad
Come out here son, we're building building particle accelerators and the like, trying to advance science and society. patrician as fuck.
meanwhile we the barbarian states like north korea, a pile of arab states, and of course the yanks, just build weapons and trying to control the whole world. it's ok, china will overrun you soon yank
