Factorial – Mon. June 15, 2015

In math, 0!, called “0 factorial” is defined as 1.
So, (0!+0!+0!) would be 3 and 3 factorial is 6. The short answer would be (0!+0!+0!)!=6. 3 factorial is 6 because 3x2x1 is 6.

Note from Barbara: Wikipedia says:
In mathematics, the factorial of a non-negative integer n, denoted by n!, is the product of all positive integers less than or equal to n. For example,

5! = 5 x 4 x3 x 2 x 1 = 120.
4! = 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 24
3! = 3 x 2 x 1 =6
2! = 2 x 1 = 2
1! = 1
The value of 0! is defined as 1,
