Solution Preview - iggest power of 10 that divides 1000! Using Exercise 12 of section 3.5 and 10 = 2â‹…5, this is the smaller of âˆ‘ r â‰¥ 1 [1000/2r] and âˆ‘ r â‰¥ 1 [1000/5r]. The first sum is bigger (by direct calculation or a general argument) than the second, which is [1000/5] + [1000/25] + [1000/125] + [1000/625] + 0 = 200 + 40 + 8 + 1 = 249. 2. Suppose t
