Evaluate each factorial expression.
106!
104!

There is no exact way to evaluate factorials except to calculate them by multiplication:
They turn out to be:
104!=102990167451456276238485838647650442830537724549990721823254917768878717324

000000000000
=1.0299016745145628*10^166 (approx.)
and
106!=114628056373470835453434738414834942870388487424139673389282723476762012382

0000000000000000
=1.1462805637347084*10^170 (approx.)
If only an approximation is required, Stirling's approximation could be used for large factorials (n>100):
n! ~ sqrt(2πn)(n/e)^n
where the error is of the order 1/n.
A closer approximation can be obtained by summing the series:
n! ~ sqrt(2πn)(n/e)^n(1+1/(12n)+1/(288n²)139/(51840n³)...)
