Reading from left to right, what is the last non - zero digit in ((20!)!)!? (That is, the factorial of factorial of 20 factorial).
I'd like to know how either answer was found.
I found a couple of algorithms for computing the last non-zero digit of n! but they require writing n in base 5.
(20!)! has over 10^19 digits in base 10, even more in base 5.
I can't help but think this problem is harder than d4.
