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

    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.
