A large number. A more interesting question might be: without trying to calculate the number explicitly, how many zeros does it have at the end?

BTW, the answer to the question, how many zeros, as you see if 15. But you can calculate it this way: how many zeros doest the integer p have at the end? # of zeros = # of factors of 10 = # of factors of 2 with matching # of factors of 5 In your number there are 5 factors of 5 from 5^5, and then another 10 factors of 5 from 10^10. Hence in total 15 factors of 5. there are certainly at least that many factors of 2, as they come from 2^2, 4^4, 6^6, 8^8 and 10^10. Hence 15 = 10 + 5 = # of factors of 2 with matching # of factors of 5 = # of factors of 10 = # of zeros
