Winning Ticket Tickle (Posted on 2014-10-06) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Gavin buys a lottery ticket, and in accordance with the rules he picks six different integers from through 1 to 46 inclusively. He chooses his numbers so that the sum of the base-ten logarithms of his six numbers is an integer.

By coincidence, the integers on the winning ticket have the same property - that is: the sum of the base-ten logarithms of the six numbers is an integer.

What is the probability that Gavin holds the winning ticket?

I've corrected my solution (in my own reply) to eliminate the 50's.

But 40 is fine--it's under 46.
