MWresearch Posted July 7, 2015 Share Posted July 7, 2015 (edited) Overall there doesn't seem to be a lot on multifactorials. Generalized formulas for multifactorials seem to only work for numbers evenly divisible by k, where k is the type of factorial "like double, triple, quadruple ect). But, my concearn is that the non-evenly-divided numbers are treated completely arbitrarily and not even conjectured, just arbitrary selected. For instance, 7!! (double factorial) would count down to 7*5*3*1, whereas 8!! would count as 8*6*4*2. See the difference? 8!! ends on 2, like its suppose to, and its evenly divisible by 2. 7!! however ends on 1, like its not suppose to because its not a mono-factorial. But, is it really "not suppose to" or is there some huge proof I'm missing that I've never see nor heard of before that proves those numbers are suppose to not end on k on the multiplication chain? If not, I would take it upon myself to redefine multifactorials at non-evenly-divisible values. Edited July 7, 2015 by MWresearch Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
