To find 85 factorial, or 85!, simply use the formula that multiplies the number 85 by all positive whole numbers less than it.

Let's look at how to calculate the Factorial of Eighty-five :

  85! is exactly : 281710411438055027694947944226061159480056634330574206405101912752560026159795933451040286452340924018275123200000000000000000000

  Factorial of 85 can be calculated as:
85! = 85 x 84 x 83 x 82 x ... x 3 x 2 x 1

  The number of trailing zeros in 85! is 20

  The number of digits in 85 factorial is 129.

What Is Factorial?

A factorial is showed by an integer and an exclamation symbol. In arithmetic, factorial is a multiplication operation of natural numbers .

It multiplies the number by every basic number that is less than it .

Symbolically, it is represented as "!".

The function is used, among other things, to find the "n" way pieces can be positioned .

Factorial Formula

To find the factorial of any given number, alternate the exact value for n in the given solution :

n! = n × (n-1) × (n-2) × (n-3) × ….× 3 × 2 × 1

The expansion of the formula gives the numbers to be multiplied together with each other to obtain the factorial of the number.

We can also determine a factorial from the prior one. The factorial of any number is that number replicated the factorial of (that number minus 1).

So the rule is : n! = n × (n−1)!

Example :
85! Factorial = 85 x 84 x 83 x 82 x ... x 3 x 2 x 1 = 85 × 84! = 281710411438055027694947944226061159480056634330574206405101912752560026159795933451040286452340924018275123200000000000000000000

What are Factorials Used For?

The best use of factorial is in Combinations and Permutations.

Example : Determine how to arrange letters without repeating?

There one way for 1 letter "a":
2 ways for two letters "ab": ab, ba.
There are 6 ways for 3 letters "abc": abc acb cab bac bca.
There are 24 ways for 1234 of the letters "abcd"
