    1. How many factors, which themselves are factors of 3, does the number 241920 have? (not including 3 itself)

    2. The difference and product of two consecutive primes are added together. Is the number produced a prime itself?

    3. Evaluate the series 3 + 7 + 11 + ... + 201 + 205.

    4. Find the value of (6! + 5!)/5!

    5. Simplify: [(n+1)!/(n-1)!]!

    Only factors of 3 are 1 and 3, so there's only 1 factor of 241920 that is also factor of 3 (except for 3 itself) and that's 1!!! (Do you mean multiples of 3??)

    7 and 11 are 2 consecutive primes, product 77, difference 4, sum of these 2 is 81 = 9*9 so no

    4. 6 + 1 = 7

    5. [(n+1)n]!

    7 and 11 are two consecutive primes.
    Difference=4
    11*7=77
    77+4=81 which is not prime (facors 9, 3 etc)

    For q. 2, it can be, but isn't neccessarily, namely 5, 3 satisfy it, but 7,11 does not.

    I don't see the pattern in questions 3. Were it an AP with common difference d, then neither 201 or 205 would be terms in the series as each term must satisfy 4n-1.

    first term 3, common difference 4, using formula for arithmetic progression we get:

    4. Find the value of (6! + 5!)/5!

    (1x2x3x4x5x6)+(1x2x3x4x5)/(1x2x3x4x5)

    (1x2x3x4x5)(1+6)/(1x2x3x4x5)

    I think people who who write posts in text gibberish, trying to mock people who enjoy doing maths problems, are the real sad ones!
