Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if decimal system is allowed, why is factorial not? That's really arbitrary. If you want to make this a fair question you have to list which operations are allowed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No it won't: \[(1+1+1+1) = 4, \quad 4! = 24\]\[(1+1+1+1)!! = 24! = 620448401733239439360000 > 285311670611 = 11^{11}\]
