# think about it, 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 4! amirite?

The voters have decided that Hipster is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

All people who disagreed are wrong. Actually, 4! means 4 factorial, which is the shorthand way to write 4x3x2x1.

@Palindromes_Are_Fun So is 3! = 3x2x1, and 6! = 6x5x4x3x2x1?

...I am ment to be in the top set in my year :/

@Palindromes_Are_Fun I'm taking Algebra 2, and I've never seen it. I think it's higher level shrug

I'm in the IB too, in the 2nd best IB international school in the world, and we haven't gone into details on factorials yet. I know we'll be doing it in more depth later on but all schools do stuff in different orders no matter what course they do so that's probably why some people haven't done it yet. But hey, the IB is just a 2 year program, so why were you going IB stuff in grade 9 anyway?

The ! point doesn't make sense if it's being used as punctuation, although the post is grammatically incorrect either way. I guess I've always thought that jokes that need the amirite at the end to be considered jokes unfunny.

@Really now? Factorials are middle school math. At first, I wondered why it was on this site...it's hardly funny...

It's not that it's difficult, it's that the majority of them have not been taught this. I learned it this year (grade 11) while taking grade 12 math. Now, do you expect people do just know everything, whether it's new to them, or not? If they weren't taught this in middle school, it's not like they didn't do anything those years, they just did other things instead. In the end, the amount of math learned is more or less balanced out.

TO EXPLAIN THIS TO EVERYBODY:
The term "!" in mathematics means "factorial". When you add it to a number, it makes the number factorial - this means it multiplies the number by each positive integer below the number. For instance, if I were to say "5!" it would mean 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1, which would be 120.

The OP is saying that 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = "4!". It is not simply 4 with an exclamation point after it - it is 4 factorial.

@Whacka TO EXPLAIN THIS TO EVERYBODY: The term "!" in mathematics means "factorial". When you add it to a number, it makes...

The thing is, it's a fairly bad post. It's either something you won't understand, assuming you don't know what factorials are, or, assuming you do know what they are, it's simply a statement, much like me posting '2 + 2 = 4, amirite?'

@Whacka TO EXPLAIN THIS TO EVERYBODY: The term "!" in mathematics means "factorial". When you add it to a number, it makes...

That's not a term! A term is a monomial part of an expression or equation.

y = 3x + 2abx + 1

y, 3x, 2abx, and 1 are all terms.

No you can't. To write it out long hand would take orders of magnitude more paper than has ever existed. I can tell you it will end in well over 134 MILLION zeros (the number of zeros is possible to find), but the numbers before that would not be possible to work out.

Where I'm from we didn't learn factorials until 11th grade. It probably just depends where you live.

I'm s senior in calculous and trig and never learned factorals

@silvershadow6 I saw that, I'm just saying I've never seen an ! used to show that.

What symbol do you use? I've never heard of another way of writing factorial.

We never used any symbols for it. Just ''multiply 4 by its factors''. We learnt the word factors, not factorials, though I'm sure they're the same thing.
I suppose it's different to American maths.

They are very not the same thing. Factorial is the product of all the integers from one up to the number. Factors are all the numbers that will divide evenly into a number. Each integer has only one factorial, but most have several factors.
