n!*(n+1)!
Let n be 2.
2!*(2+1)! = 2! * 3! = (2 *1 )(3 * 2* 1) = \((2!)^2\)(2+1)
\(n!^2\)(n+1)
Answer E...

Which of the following is equal to (n!)(n+1)!?

A. \((n!)^2\)
B. \((n+1)!^2\)
C. \(n!^3(n+1)!^2\)
D. \(n!^3(n+1)\)
E. \(n!^2(n+1)\)


Notice that (n+1)(n!) = (n+1)!
Why is this?
Well if we expand n! to be (n)(n-1)(n-2)....(3)(2)(1) we can see why.
We get: (n+1)(n!) = (n+1)(n)(n-1)(n-2)....(3)(2)(1)
= (n+1)!


So, (n!)(n+1)! = (n!)(n+1)(n!)
= (n!)² (n+1)

\(n!(n+1)! = n! \times n! \times (n+1) = (n!)^2 \times (n+1)\)

The answer is E
