So \(8*(8*2)*(8*3)*(8*4).....(8*99)(8*100)=8^{100}*(1*2*3..99*100)=8^{100}*100!\)

So zeroes would depend on numbers of 5s in 100! = \(\frac{100}{5}\frac{100}{5^2}=20+4=24\)

So D

this math problem is a common pattern in gmat.

Here, there is a minor error of the question. That is, 0 can be the multiple of 8. I believe that there should be a modification on this question.

The answer is simple itself. A = 100! * 8^100. We look for the number of factors 5 => D is the answer
