### 100 Factorial

Puzzle:

How many consecutive zeros are there at the end of 100! (100 factorial) ?

For Solution SCROLL DOWN...

Solution:

There are 24 zeros on the end of 100!

One solution would be to work this out and count the zeros, well I've done this so you don't have to. The answer is...
9332621544394415268169923885626670049071596826438162146859296389521759999322991560894146397615651828625369792082722375825118520916864000000000000000000000000
Well now you can clearly just count the zeros but actually working out the number is not practical so we need another plan.

The clever bit here is thinking what numbers when multiplied together will end in a zero.
So the product of what numbers when multiplied ends in a zero:
1. When one of the things being multiplied ends in zero itself
2. A number ending in 5 multiplied by an even number
3. 25, 50 and 75 when multiplied by some of the small numbers available eg (4, 2 and 6) generate an extra zero

Below is tabulated the origin of all the zeros:
 Number Zeros Number Zeros 100 2 95 1 90 1 85 1 80 1 75 2 70 1 65 1 60 1 55 1 50 2 45 1 40 1 35 1 30 1 25 2 20 1 15 1 10 1 5 1 Total 12 Total 12

So that's it then there are 24 zeros at the end of 100!

from 20 to 90 add each one - EIGHT zeroes
unit's digit product 9.8.7...2.1 add to one each and hence - TEN zeroes

For any number result will be:
N/5 +N/25 + N/125 +N/625 +......
Taking integer part only.

gurleen said...

hey satish .. ive to solve : the number of cosecutive zeroes in 2008 .. so i found ur ans.. but was wonderig where do i end the series.. if u cud reply back wud be great.. thanks

Kaavya said...

Suman,

Why cant any number ending with 5 (other than 25, 75) lead to an extra 0, for example like 45, 65.. and so on.. I am not sure why this cant happen.

Can some body answer this ?

Shyam Bhawsar said...

The reason is 25,50 and 75 contains the full square of 5 i.e. 25 = 5*5*1, 50=5*5*2, 75=5*5*3.

but the correct one is :

Niranjan said...

5! = 120
10 ! = ------- 00

15 ! = ------- 000
20 ! = ------- 0000

in short after every 5 one zero is added. There are 10 5's and 10 100's from 1 to 100 hence 100 ! has 20 Zero's

Instead we can calculate it using, ceil(100/5)+ceil(100/(5^2)+ceil(100/5^3) = 24 :)

David Jackman said...

Here's a simple math puzzle that forces you to avoid brute force in solving it and instead look for different ways of thinking about the problem.

I thought about which numbers, when multiplied, will give you zeros. There's two types: numbers that end in zero (10, 20, etc...) and numbers that end in 5 (when they're multiplied by an even number!).

Counting all that, you get 21 zeros. But we're not done yet!

There are three instances where you end up with a number that ends in a five, then a zero (for example, I got 150, 50, and 1350 but this was specific for the numbers I multiplied to give me a better illustration of the zeros).

If you multiply these numbers by even numbers, you get one more zero (50 * 2 = 100, 150 * 4 = 600, etc..)

Therefore, there are 24 zeros at the end of 100!

I wonder if you could cleverly figure out what the digit would be right before the zeros started? It must be an even number because it's multiplied by 2, but I wonder if you could circumvent the process of actually solving 100! to find it. THAT would also be a good puzzle.
