Hail to thee, Sofia! (Posted on 2010-12-13) Difficulty: 2 of 5


Let p= 1/2*3/4*5/6*7/8..*99/100.

Is p bigger than, equal to or less than 0.1 ?

The famous Sofia Kovalevskaya (1850-1891) solved this problem allegedly in no time, when she was only twelve years old.

Please provide your answer without programming and without direct evaluation.
