To find 86 factorial, or 86!, simply use the formula that multiplies the number 86 by all positive whole numbers less than it.

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

86! is exactly : 24227095383672732381765523203441259715284870552429381750838764496720162249742450276789464634901319465571660595200000000000000000000

Factorial of 86 can be calculated as:
86! = 86 x 85 x 84 x 83 x ... x 3 x 2 x 1

The number of trailing zeros in 86! is 20

The number of digits in 86 factorial is 131.

## What Is Factorial?

A factorial is displayed by an integer and an exclamation symbol. In math concepts, factorial is a multiplication treatment of natural numbers .

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

Symbolically, it is listed as "!".

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

## Factorial Formula

To find the factorial of any given number, replace the value for n in the given equation :

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

The expansion of the formula provides numbers to be multiplied collectively to get the factorial of the number.

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

So the rule is : n! = n × (n−1)!

Example :
86! Factorial = 86 x 85 x 84 x 83 x ... x 3 x 2 x 1 = 86 × 85! = 24227095383672732381765523203441259715284870552429381750838764496720162249742450276789464634901319465571660595200000000000000000000

## 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"
