6. A person played the lottery two times a week for one month (eight total times buying one ticket each time there was going to be a drawing). The chance of winning the lottery is 1 in 76 million. The person purchased eight more lottery tickets (one for each draw, twice a week for eight total times). Should the person assume their chances are greater to win the lottery the next time they played the lottery? Why?

chances are greater....that is like doubling the  stake thereby increasing the chances of a win
