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) Answer: _________________ Brent Hanneson – GMATPrepNow.com Senior CR Moderator Status: Long way to go!
