# How To Pick Your Powerball Number

Below are the results from the previous 104 Powerball drawings, encompassing an entire year's worth of data. With this, we can make some interesting calculations. In a perfectly balanced world, each Powerball number should be drawn an average number of times, calculated as 104 divided by 26, which comes to 4 times. Ideally, we would expect all numbers to be drawn this average number of times. However, let's make the dataset more manageable and intriguing by dividing the Powerball numbers into two groups - High and Low - and conduct a comparison! What patterns or anomalies will we uncover? Observing these trends over time could lead to some fascinating insights. Upon comparing, we notice an interesting phenomenon. The Low numbers generally match the expected average, with some exceeding it to become leaders. Conversely, the High group exhibits less consistency with the expected average, displaying some numbers that significantly outperform others, leading to what I like to term as 'super leaders'. If you spot a zero (0) in the 'Times Drawn' column, that indicates that particular Powerball number hasn't been drawn at all in the past year! And interestingly enough, I've observed numbers remaining undrawn for as long as three and a half years! To visually track these trends and patterns over time, we will be plotting these data on a graph. It's going to be a thrilling journey of numbers, trends, and anomalies. As time progresses, these graphs will become even more revealing and intriguing, helping us understand the behavior of Powerball numbers in a fun and engaging way.
