Well i'm not sure I know the answer to this question but maybe we can work together. I know that 5! is 1x2x2x4x5 so now we know that r! is.

Kirby, where'd you get 5?

well.. it would have to be divisible by r! if you have 5 consecutive numbers, lets say 10/11/12/13/14 then 5! = 5*4*3*2*1 you can notice 12 is divisible by 3*4, 10 by 5*2

well i typed out a fairly nice post showing exactly what I meant, but my comp froze and I lost it all point was, for any length r, you will create a series of consecutive numbers such that r! is a factor in every one (except primes, of course) because the values along your length r depend on r itself
