Though we are given that n, m and k are greater than 1, in order for n to satisfy the equation 1!+2!+3!+...+n! = mk, n must be greater than 3. The factorials for 1, 2 and 3 are already included and the notation in the equation is written that indicates n as some number greater than 3, with mk equal to the summation of all the factorials of the integers from 1 to n.
