Terminating in this context mean "placed at the end." For example, 1000 has 3 terminating zeroes, 1,000,000 has 6 terminating zeroes, and googol has 100 terminating zeroes.

Express 200 as product of primes containing 2 and 5 , because each 2X5 produces one zero

total 2 and 5s in 200 = 200/5 + 200/25 = 40 + 8

So there must be 48 terminating zeroes in 200!

You have the right idea. Close but no cigar.

Look again, is your analysis complete?

Did I miss one more factor containing 125 ( 200 / 5.5.5 ) = 1

So total it makes 49
