Hi,

I’m trying to figure out the best way to determine the following:

There is a lottery that draws six numbers from 49. This means that there are a total 13,983,816 possible six number combinations.

I’m trying to determine how many of these 13,983,816 combinations have never had 3 numbers (or more) “come up”.

There have been a total of 1,992 draws since the inception of the lottery.

I have access to all of the data in raw format.

My question is, what is the best algorithim or method to determine the result?

Thank you very much!
