In the national lottery 6 balls are drawn with numbers 1 to 49 on them. My father could never believe that the numbers 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 had exactly the same odds to come out as any other set of six you defined (e.g. 3,11,24,34,35,47).
Is there a name for this kind of bias or confusion with numbers?
Should I be asking on this on the Math or English stackexchange ..
