Summing consecutive factorials (Posted on 2018-06-26) Difficulty: 1 of 5
1!=1^2; 1!+2!+3!=3^2
Are there any other sums of n consecutive factorials that sum up to a perfect square?

Either list them all or prove there are none.

Daniel, the square of any integer n=2 mod7 = 4 mod7.

For n=51 = 2 mod7, 51^2 = 2601 = 4 mod7
