comment Proving closure
and $x*y = -1$ iff $x(1+y) = -(1+y)$. Does it ring a bell?

comment Asymptotic equivalent of the law of lotto minimal value
Oh god. I was pretty sure that using your $\ell$ trick it was possible to prove $$1 - \left( 1 - {m\over n-\ell} \right)^\ell <\mathbb P(X\le \ell) < 1-(1-p)^\ell.$$ I’am missing something, I’ll have to go back on this later.

comment Asymptotic equivalent of the law of lotto minimal value
In fact, $\left(1-\frac m{n-l}\right)^{k-1}\frac m{n-l} < \mathbb P(X=k) < (1-p)^{k-1} p$, so you get easily a framing of $\mathh b \P(X \le \ell)$ that allows to conclude with the squeeze theorem. This is nice.

comment Asymptotic equivalent of the law of lotto minimal value
My question was more general, but I think in this way it will be possible to concludre concerning $\mathbb P(X \le k)$... the $\ell$ trick is beautiful, many thanks.

comment About finding the function such that $f(xy)=f(x)f(y)-f(x+y)+1$
This is homework, right? Starting point: show that $f(0) = 1$. Try to continue with integers, then with rationals of the form $1\over q$, finish with $\mathbb Q$.
