N! CAN BE EXPRESSED AS = Q*10^6 WHERE Q IS AN INTIGER NOT ENDING IN ZERO

thus to have 10^6 = (5*2)^6 we need five multiples of 5 and sure then we ll have our 2^6

if we divided 30/5 then we will get 6 multoples of 5 namely(5,10,15....30)

my answer is C

yezz is too smart for me.

I just tried to get tens wherever I could.

2*5=10
10 = 10
4*15 = 60
20 = 20

not enough at 20

25*8=200

that gives us 6 zeroes.
