See the notes for information about why Lyndon likes this problem. He has also added a further related question (in green below).



If factorial $100$ ($100!$) was rewritten as the product of its prime factors how many $2$s and how many $5$s would there be?

Along the way confirm how many zeros are at the end of this large number and what the first digit to precede them is.
