$$990=2*5*3^2*11$$

We are told that $$n!=990*k=2*5*3^2*11*k$$ which means that n! must have all factors of 990 to be the multiple of 990, hence must have 11 too, so the least value of n is 11 (notice that 11! will have all other factors of 990 as well, otherwise the least value of n would have been larger).

is it 11 ?
990 = 2 * 5 * 9 * 11
so the least value for "N" can be 11.

990= 11*10*9

since 11 is a prime no which does not have factor apart from 11 and 1. so 11 is necessary no for 990.

hence n=11
