You — yes, you — can be a multimillionaire, just by following this advice on the Yahoo! front page:
Yes, you can win Powerball, and it will only cost you $118. There are 59 numbers in Powerball, and it costs $2 to purchase a Powerball ticket, so if you buy “every possible number,” you’re guaranteed a winner!
Unless the Einsteins who write for yahoo.com are mistaken. Perhaps they’re a little changed in the vocabulary department. Perhaps they don’t realize that “number” is not the same thing as “combination of numbers.” You’d have to buy every possible combination, which is a little bit more than 59. In fact, it’s a little bit more than 175,000,000.
