    10! is defined as the product of 10 and its preceding whole numbers

    The expression "x!" means x(x-1)(x-2)(x-3)...1 So 10! means 10(10-1)(10-2)(10-3)(10-4)(10-5)(10-6)(10-7)(10-8)(10-9)= 10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1=10!, which means it is correct.

    the 1 on the end is redundant....factual, but redundant

    Why wouldn't it be true though?
