I need to figure out the following factorial(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] \frac{297!}{98! * 199!} [/tex]

then take the logarithim of that

Is there a rule that I can use to simplify the equation and get the same result?

,

I did another example where I used

[tex] \frac{310!}{2!*299!} [/tex]

and I figured it out to be

(310*309*308*307*306*305*304*303*302*301*300) / 2!

but if i were to apply the same rule

I'd need to do 98 multiplications starting from 297 going down to 199

and that'd take way too long in my calculator. i.e 297*296*295....200 / 98!

please help, I need some rules to follow

i couldn't find any anywhere,
