    finding number series in an array

    Hi,
    I have an exercise to solve.
    in the lottery, each week 6 random numbers from 1-37 are chosen.
    I have the last 15 weeks lottery numbers that won.
    I need to find 12 numbers that will maximize the weeks that all 6 random numbers are between those 12 numbers

    meaning I have an array of 15 rows and 6 numbers in each row all numbers are from 1-37
    I want to find 12 numbers that will maximize the times that all 6 numbers in a row are in those 12 numbers

    can it be done in excel?

    Your post does not comply with Rule 1 of our Forum RULES. Your post title should accurately and concisely describe your problem, not your anticipated solution.

    Use terms appropriate to a Google search. Poor thread titles, like Please Help, Urgent, Need Help, Formula Problem, Code Problem, and Need Advice will be addressed according to the OP's experience in the forum: If you have less than 10 posts, expect (and respond to) a request to change your thread title. If you have 10 or more posts, expect your post to be locked, so you can start a new thread with an appropriate title.

    To change a Title on your post, click EDIT then Go Advanced and change your title, if 2 days have passed ask a moderator to do it for you.
