(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

neither my professor nor my TA could figure this out. so they are offering fat extra credit for the following problem

Let n be a positive integer greater than 1 and let p_{1},p_{2},...,p_{t}be the primes not exceeding n.

show that p_{1}p_{2}...p_{t}<4^{n}

3. The attempt at a solution

I really dont know where to start here.

just throwing this out there, im guessing they got 4^{k}by having the sum of something like 2k+1 choose k but thats just a complete guess.
