# FORMULA Software to Calculate Degree of Certainty, Probability for Any Lotto Game

## By Ion Saliu, Founder of Gambling Mathematics, Lotto Mathematics

FORMULA is probability software to calculate Degree of Certainty (DC), probability (p). The user can create his or her own fundamental tables of gambling (FTG) as in the Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG); applicable to any lottery or lotto. FORMULA was superseded by a more powerful, 32-bit version: SuperFormula.

: Hi,

: Can someone make me a table (like the one on your site - degree of certainty) if p=7 (6/42) or tell me how to do it myself?

Loco:
• Doesn't it mean “crazy” in Spanish? Ah, you are crazy about formulas…
Just use FORMULA (or, better still, SuperFormula) to create a probability/degree of certainty table for anything you can imagine. The program is on the software download site. It pays off to look around a big website, such as this one.

You must be at the COMMAND prompt. Type:

FORMULA

Then press {Enter}. (I don't know why I go in such simplistic details today…)

Select 1: FFG, then select 2 (let the program calculate p).

Type 6 for the 1st element, and 42 for the 2nd element of the fraction.

Select any DC (degree of certainty) you want to. For example, type 50 (for a 50% DC). The program calculates N. Write it down. Run FFG again. Type again 6 and 42. This time try a degree of certainty of 75. Next try degree of certainty DC = 80, or whatever DC you want (greater than 0 but lower than 100).
