Re: Arithmetic puzzle
It is not possible.
For n>1 we have:
log n! < log n^{n} = n log n < n^{2}
So n! always has fewer than n^{2} digits (except for 1! and 0!).
For n>1 we have:
log n! < log n^{n} = n log n < n^{2}
So n! always has fewer than n^{2} digits (except for 1! and 0!).
Re: Arithmetic puzzle
Thank you
(n^2)/d(n!) is equal to pi(n) when n goes to infinity (where pi(n) is the counting function of primes)
Is there any interpretation of this "equality"?
My last post because I wanted to point out to this.
Good luck and good bye!

No one asked me about clarification. Sir Gabriel answered without asking.

Where did you see any contempt from myself?

I would guess that interpretation is lim(n>infinity) (n^2)/(d(n!)*pi(n))=1.
What is the function d in this case?
Re: Arithmetic puzzle
I believe d(n) is just shorthand for "the number of digits in n."
I wonder about the fact that n^2 and pi(n) are not dependent on the base, but d(n) is.
