### Full Answer

This is called a permutation with repetition because each number can be used more than once and order matters. If each number, one through 59, can only be used once (a permutation without repetition), there are 600,766,320 combinations. If the order the numbers are in does not matter and there is no repetition (such as when lottery balls are picked), then there are 5,006,386 possible combinations.
