Posted by jasoncashton: Ive used the same 3 numbers for the safe ever since day 1. Havent cracked it yet, how many combinations could there be and will my 3 ever hit...

There are 999 combinations so after 999 days if you try every day considering that the safe lasts an average of 3 day (guestimate)each time befor its cracked you have a 33% chance of getting it right... i think. So in 2997 days you should crack it once. 2997 days is 8.2 years. Good luck pal...

If my maths is wrong im sure someone will point it out

1000 combinations, 000 is one to & it will be much less than 33% because that means every 3 tries he should win, so every 1000 goes it technically should be his number once so its like 0.01%, & you guess it changes every 3 days so after about 3000 days it should go through every number

edit: but now I think you are right because I got 8.2 years lol so just ignore me

the code is changed every time money is added / its cracked. as money is added almost daily and its usually cracked before it reaches the amount when money is added every 2-3 days, so on average 1 code lasts <1 day so u shud crack it once every <1000 days if u try daily assuming its completely random and someone doesnt crack it earlier with same number you are using
