Skip and Hit Graph
|Top Previous Next|
The Skip and Hit graph displays information from the Skip and Hit chart in bar graph format.
To view the Skip and Hit graph, click on the Statistics button or the Statistics menu and select Skip and Hit Chart/Graph. Click on the Skip and Hit Graph button on the toolbar.
The number of drawings that are analyzed in the Skip and Hit graph is dependent on the setting of the Drawing Cutoff.
The horizontal axis of the graph represents the numbers drawn in the lottery, with 15 numbers being shown at a time.
When you first open the graph, information for numbers 1 to 15 is displayed. To view information for numbers higher than 15, click on the Higher Numbers button on the toolbar. To view lower numbers, click on the Lower Numbers button on the toolbar.
The graph has different color vertical bars representing the 25 skip categories (0 to 24). A legend to the right of the graph associates each color with a skip category (0 to 24). The numerical value for a particular category can be determined by comparing the height of the bar to the values on the vertical axis.
If a number has a vertical bar for the Skip 0 category, it's value indicates the number of times the number was drawn with no skips (back to back). If a number has a vertical bar for the Skip 1 category, it's value indicates the number of times that number was drawn, skipped a drawing, and was drawn again (1 skip). When interpreting the graph, you should look for the highest skip value for a number.
The Skip and Hit graph is normally used with the Hit Sequence Chart. From the Skip and Hit graph you can determine that a number has a tendency of skipping a certain number of drawings before hitting again. You can then look at the Hit Sequence chart to see how long it has been since the number last hit. If the skip tendency is equal to the number of drawings since the number last hit, it would be a good number to play.
Click on the Print Preview button on the toolbar to view how the graph will appear before it is printed. You can also change the page orientation, margins and graph detail.
Click on the Print button on the toolbar to print the graph. If you have a color printer, the graph will print in color.
Click on the Copy to Clipboard button to copy the graph to the Windows clipboard. The graph can then be pasted into any graphics program, using the Paste command in the graphics program.
Click on the Return to Skip and Hit Chart button on the toolbar to view the Skip and Hit chart.
Tip: To make the graph larger and easier to read, click on the Maximize button in the upper right hand corner of the graph window.
