    Hey guys! Thanks for stopping by to help me out!!,


    I am having a bit of an issue understanding these questions

    The factorial operator "!" is defined such that:

    n! = n x (n - 1) x (n - 2) x ... x 3 x 2 x 1
    ie. 4! = 4 x 3 x 2 x 1
    = 24


    Simplify the following, giving your answer in the form a/b (a over b) where a and b are integers


    24! + 4! x 13!
    5! x 23! 15!

    Is there a question? This is just a definition.

    Could you clarify the question please? I see you have underlined some things... Is that to represent division?

    So the question is [24! +4! x 13!] all divided by [5! x 23! x 15!] ?
