Is it Okey for saying if you won the lottery you could buy a car?
Asked in Cars & Vehicles, Grammar, Facebook
Which is more natural to say that If I won the lottery I would could buy a car or If I won the lottery I could buy a car?
Either "I would buy" or "I could buy" is correct, but their meaning is slightly different. "I would buy" is more definite; the speaker clearly wants a car. "I could buy" is less definite that the speaker would actually buy a car or something else; the speaker is merely indicating the ability to afford the car, not the desire to have one.

Asked in Shopping
What can you buy with 300?
I am assuming you mean three hundred dollars. What do you want to buy? You could buy clothing, but depending on what store you go to three hundred dollars might only buy you two pairs of jeans and a shirt. You could buy two carts of groceries, or fifteen $20 lottery tickets from the Pennsylvania Lottery. It all depends on what you want. That is a decent amount of money to blow.

How can you win the million dollar Florida Lottery?
You would need to buy lottery tickets and hope. Theoretically, you could buy lottery tickets with every possible combination to guarantee that you win, but that would be very expensive and time-consuming. In addition, you might have to share the jackpot with other people who chose the winning combination.
Asked in Gambling
When will I hit the lottery?
Lottery drawings are entirely random and unpredictable. However, if you could purchase lottery tickets for EVERY SINGLE COMBINATION of numbers, you could "buy" the lottery. This has actually been done, at least once. This takes good planning, a lot of people, and a LOT of money. If nobody else has the winning number, you can actually come out ahead, but if you split the jackpot with somebody else, you'll lose money even though you WON THE LOTTERY!!!
