Hi Timothy, you can't. Try to find out how many zeroes are in 101 counting the factors of 2 and of 5. But you could count them: In[1]:= Count[IntegerDigits[125!],0] Out[1]= 47 Jurgen -----Original Message----- From: Timothy Anderson <trafh at aol.com> To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Subject: [mg13458] [mg13418] discrete math, how many zeroes in 125! >how can I solve this problem by counting the factors of 2 and 5 without >doing each factor individually? thanks for any real quick help!
