Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

total number of tickets = 50 million = 50 x 10^6

probability of getting one winning ticket = 1/50 million= (1/50 )x10^-6
probability = 2x10^(-8)
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
