## How Many Doubles in Bets ? - Quick and Easy Way to Work Out The Number of Doubles in Any Number of Selections.

This article will quickly learn you how to work out the number of doubles in any number of selections or bets.

Trebles and accumulators are a little more difficult,but working out number of doubles in bets is very simple and quick.

How to Calculate The Number of Doubles in Bets.

Just remember this when trying to find out number of doubles in bets - the number 2 for doubles.

Lets do the easiest example of all to explain it in the procedure.

Number of doubles in 3 selections.

You are finding doubles,so count back 2 numbers from number of selections,in this case 3  ×  2.

Now use that number 2 that applies every time you work out the number of doubles in bets.

So,for 3 runners the equation is 3  ×  2 ÷ 2

As you can see,the bottom 2 cancels out the top 2 - and just leaves 3 - and thats the number of doubles in 3 selections.

A bit more difficult,The Number of Doubles in 9 selections.

Just the same procedure as before.

Count back two numbers from number of selections,this time 9 selections so use 9  ×  8.

Again,you always divide the even number by 2.

So the equation for 9 selections is 9  ×  8 ÷ 2

You can now see,that all you need do do is HALVE the even number (every time) and then multiply the 2 remaining numbers - in this case 4 (which is the 8 halved) and 9 = 36 doubles in 9 selections.

Much bigger number - Number of doubles in 18 selections.

.....

High number but still pretty simple.

Now you have 18  ×  17 ÷ 2 .

Which you now know reads 9 × 17 = 153 doubles in 18 selections.

So,to just sum up,to work out the number of doubles in any number of selection - just use top 2 numbers of selections - halve the EVEN number - then just multiply the 2 remaining numbers.

It is as simple as that,and you can now work out any number of doubles in any number of selections very quickly.
