I am a little stumped at what this page says. Here's the website.
http://www.rapidtables.com/math/algebra/Factorial.htm
In the formula n!=5*(51)!=5*24=120
Where is the 24 coming from? And with strillings apx. as listed on this page is the "e" n Euler's conststant ? Maybe I'm getting this confused with a factoring. Is factoring and factorials the same thing?
