There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

We find the figure are multiple of 5, so 100,105,...........,195, there are 20.
(195-100)/5 +1 =20

futher we should check 100=5*20, 105=5*21........,195=5*39, so we should pick up from 20,21,...............,39, which one can be the multiple of 5, there are 4.
(35-20)/5 +1=4
Futher 25=5*5, so should remember.
Combined above, 20+4+1=24

This is my answer, is it right?

5^k is a factor of the product of odd integers from 99 -199, what is the greatest possible value of k?

Is it 20?

Thanks praetorian

odd integers that are divisible by 5 are 105, 115, 125 ... 195. So, they are 10 in total. 125, 150 and 175 have 5^3, 5^2 and 5^2 as factors. So, k should be 10 + 2 + 1 + 1 = 14.
