(FAQ 9) - I clicked in the BIG white box on the Right, what does that do?

The ultimate lottery utility software for use with Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries. Its more that just a number picker for lotto...

I clicked in the BIG white box on the Right, what does that do?
When you click any row on the right side, (or) click on a number in the Drop-down List Box (#1) located between the two large white boxes (look here for information on this) the program will calculate a set of average balls from the point where you clicked up to the last drawing.  In the example below, the user clicked on the ninth row which was dated 04/07/2012.  The program calculated an average from the ninth row up to 05/05/2012, i.e. the last 9 drawings.  The results are displayed in the left white Results box.  This is an average of each column of balls for 9 drawings.
For example,  in the first "Column" you see the numbers: 09,07 31,04,06,20,14,16,05 (remember, a column is up & down).  If you add these up and divide by the number of rows (in this case 9), the number of the first ball displayed on the results side is 13. This is done for each column.  If the result calculation ends in a fraction, the program will round to the nearest whole number.  So as you can see,  It is possible to get an average of balls from past drawings for any number of drawings all the way back to 11/1/1997(Powerball) or 9/6/1996(Mega Millions), or any Date Range you choose.  These averages would in my opinion be good numbers to play as they represent an average set of numbers drawn for a given period of time.  For another way to perform this same function look here.
