Leftclick Lotteries Inc. runs a lottery in which 5 balls are drawn from a barrel of numbered white balls (so that each white ball may be drawn once only), and 1 ball is drawn from a different barrel of numbered black balls. There are 45 white balls and 45 black balls. Players must correctly select the numbers of all 5 white balls, as well as that of the black ball in order to win the main prize.

What is the probability of winning the main prize with any single given entry?
