10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1 = 10!
Can this be true?! Why or why not?
Im totally confused with this.
Miley would like your help, please and thank you<3

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.
