There are 24 trailing zeros in 100! and 49 trailing zeros in 200!

Addition of 100! and 200! will result in only 24 trailing zeros.

Answer: E

The number of zeroes at the end of 100! will be less than the number of zeroes at the end of 200!
Hence it would be sufficient to calculate the number of zeroes at the end of 100!

Number of zeroes = [100/5] + [100/25] + [100/125] = 20 + 4 + 0 = 24

Correct Option: E

\(100! + 200! = 100! (1 + 101*102*103* … *200)\)

Expression in the parenthesis will have \(1\) as its units digit. Hence we need to know only the number of trailing zeros at the end of \(100! = 24\)

No of zeroes in the 100! + 200! will be the numebr of zeroes in 100!..

100! has 24 zeroes ..

100/5 = 20
20/5 = 4

So, the correct answer will be (E) 24

While adding two numbers, the numbers of zeros will depend on the number with lesser number of zeros.

For example, 200 + 2000 will have only 2 trailing zeros and the number of zeros is limited by 200 which has 2 only zeros. [200 + 2000 = 2200]

So, instead of wasting time in finding the number of zeros of 200!, we can simply find the number of zeros in 100! and mark the answer.

The number of zeros in \(100! = \frac{100}{5} + \frac{20}{5} = 20 + 4 = 24\)

Hence the correct answer is Option E.

I don't understand this part here

The number of zeros in \(100! = \frac{100}{5} + \frac{20}{5} = 20 + 4 = 24\)

Can someone please explain?
