Im totally confused with this.

How can multiplying all of those numbers together only equal 10???

MATH  Leo, Thursday, January 27, 2011 at 7:55pm
I think she means 10! or "ten factorial".
And yes, the math statement is true by definition.

Leo is correct.
! following a number is the mathematical "factorial" symbol, NOT an exclamation point.
It appears often in probability equations.
4! = 1*2*3*4 = 24, for example.
