Winning the jackpot requires that you select the correct five numbers between 1 and 56 and, in a seperate drawing, you must also select the correct single number between 1 and 39. Find the probability of winning the jackpot.

[1/ 56C5]* 1/39

$${\frac{{\mathtt{1}}}{{\left({\frac{{\mathtt{56}}{!}}{{\mathtt{5}}{!}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}({\mathtt{56}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{5}}){!}}}\right)}}}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}\left({\frac{{\mathtt{1}}}{{\mathtt{39}}}}\right) = {\mathtt{0.000\: \!000\: \!006\: \!712\: \!633\: \!7}}$$

--------------------------------------------------------------------

$${\left({\frac{{\mathtt{56}}{!}}{{\mathtt{5}}{!}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}({\mathtt{56}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{5}}){!}}}\right)}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}{\mathtt{39}} = {\mathtt{148\,972\,824}}$$

 

Probability of winning is .....not very high  LOL
