10000!= 1*2*3*4*.....*9999*10000

10000!= (1*3*5*....*9997*9999) * (2*4*6.......*9998*10000)

10000!= (1*3*5*....*9997*9999) * \(2^{5000}\)(1*2*3.......*4999*5000)

10000!= (1*3*5*....*9997*9999) * \(2^{5000}\)*(5000!)

(1*3*5*....*9997*9999)= \(\frac{10000!}{ 2^{5000}*(5000!)}\)

[quote="Bunuel"]What is the product of all positive odd integers less than 10000?


A. \(\frac{10000!}{{(5000!)^2}}\)

B. \(\frac{10000!}{2^{5000}}\)

C. \(\frac{9999!}{2^{5000}}\)

D. \(\frac{10000!}{2^{5000}. 5000!}\)

E. \(\frac{5000!}{2^{5000}}\)

1. N= 1*3*5*7*9*.......9999
2.M=1*2*3*4*5*6*7*8*9**.....10000
3.A=2*4*6*8*10***10000

So
M/A gives you N
4. M/A= 1*2*3*4*5*6*7*8*9*10..10000/(2*1)(2*2) (2*3) (2*4) (2*5)......(2*5000)
5. 10000!/2^5000(5000!)

tried with smaller nos
let 10000 ---> 8
then odd nos are 1 3 5 and 7 , which when multiplied give 105.

D results in the same.

Asked: What is the product of all positive odd integers less than 10000?

The product of all positive odd integers less than 10000 \(= 1*3*5*7*....*9999 = \frac{1*2*3*4*.....9999}{2*4*6*...9998} = \frac{9999!}{2^{4999}*4999!} = \frac{10000!}{2^{5000}*5000!}

IMO D

followed this approach, not sure if it will be applicable to all such ques:

- Take a sample of first 10 integers,

- Product of odd integers from first 10: 9*7*5*3*1 = 63*15

Now, Go through options and make similar scenario:

Option A: \(\frac{10000!}{(5000!)^2}\) --> Similar to it, \(\frac{10!}{(5!)^2} = 63*4 .... No\)

Same way...Option B...no

Option C. ..no

Option D: \(\frac{10000!}{2^(5000) .5000!}\) --> Similar to it, \(\frac{10!}{(2)^5.5!} =63*15\)

IMO Option D!
