Today, I , Svatejas and Vighnesh were chatting on slack and I accidentally came across this problem:

Find the largest integer \(n\) such that \(n!<a\) for some positive integer \(a\) having \(n\) digits.

Find a method to do this. Hoping for numerous approaches :)

@Nihar Mahajan Let's create some problem using factorials and 9166 tomorrow. Till then I won't follow anyone :P

I'll try to list all such integer till n=6 by tmmrw.(through coding obviously)

There is no one-formula for this question.

If we include some relation between \(a\) and \(n\) then? For example: if \(a\) has \(n\) digits.

Stirling's formula.
