TotalTickets sold is 200

winning percentage is 1/200/100 = 0.00005%

1/200 x 100% = 0.5% chance to win 1 ticket..//

I agree with Zirp: how many prizes are there???

Assuming only 1:

1/200 *(100%) = 5%

Notes: Notice I multiplied by 100%? 100% =1 so this is the correct way to convert to percentage!
