This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

I'm currently busy now. Ty using the infinite product of gamma(x+2)

What have you tried? What makes you think there's a closed form?

I don't know I just made this problem and asked my school teacher, she said it was pretty tough. So I asked for help.

Not all series /integrals has a nice closed form.

See the report. Your problem is flawed.

Very unlikely this series has a closed form. Factorials/gamma functions in integrals, especially in denominators of integrals, are difficult to evaluate in general.

It is best to proceed in the direction of a motivating problem which applies integration in its solution, or to build a problem on the back of techniques already well-studied.
