Remember this sequence for future Series Series Questions.

I am positive that there are many more in this series, and furthermore that there are many between 729 and 970299. I just plucked the low-hanging fruit (although I suppose 117649 was not that low).

May I submit 5040 = (5+0+sqrt(4))! + 0 as another candidate?

I suspect that many--nay, all--factorials for N>3 will fit under this rubric.

[I will leave N>13 to the reader...]
479001600 = (4+7+(9*0)+0+1+(6*0)+0)!
39916800 = (3+9-(1+6+8+0)^0)!
3628800 = (3+6+2-(8/8)+0+0)!
362880 = (3*(6/2)*(8/8)+0)!
40320 = (4+(0*3+2)+0)!
5040 is already in the thread
720 = (7-2^0)!
120 = ((1+2)!-0!)! (ugly, but valid)
24 = (2*sqrt(4))!

Sorry, but ((1+2)!+0)! equals 720.

Yeah, I just spotted that!
A bit less ugly and a bit less valid. LOL

ASA, are you trying to get me to quit the Series Series series forever?? Razz

All this math is frightening me!!! Surprised

You guys/gals are WAY too smart for me. Thumbs up

Wow.

I had no idea all of this spinoff posting was going on in here. Makes my little teaser of 4 4s(which I did not realize was such a classic puzzle and is all over the internet) look like corn flakes!

You guys are amazing. And that makes me more determined to post something, someday, that will be fair, but even challenging for you!

But, uh, in the meantime, I better have some more Wheaties!
