    first write it all out, then factor the numbers that are not prime

    you cannot factor a prime number that is why it is called prime

    start with \[11\times 10\times 9\times 8\times 7\times 6\times 5\times 4\times 3\times 2\]

    then factor the numbers that can be factored, like for example \(10=5\times 2\)

    you have a lot more work to do you have to factor all the numbers that you can

    \[11!=2^\text{number of even terms +1}\times3^\text{number of terms divisible by 3+1}\\ \qquad\times5^\text{no. of terms divisible by 5}\times7^{1}\times11^{1}\]

    so, \[11!=2^8\times3^4\times5^2\times7\times11\]
