There are none. In any fair lottery (such as WI state lottery) after a couple months, each number should have been selected almost the same amount of times.

### 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!!!

### Which number less than 100 has the greatest number of common factors?

Short answer: There is none.
There are not common factors of a single number because there
cannot be any form of common factor without two or more numbers to
compare. Common factors are factors that the numbers being compared
have in common. Thus, there cannot be a single number that has the
greatest number of common factors.
