Using “Only Four” ZEROS (0) and any Mathematical Operations/Symbols, to obtain the number 24.

So can someone explain to me how, (0! + 0! + 0! + 0!)! = 24

Im sure this is simple to most of you but i am very slow when it comes to maths.

4! = 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 24

0! = 0 x -1 x -2 x -3 ~ = 1

huh? :)

you can think of it like this:

n! = (n-1)!*n

so:

3! = 2!*3

2! = 1!*2

1! = 0!*1 => 0! = 1

also there is no factorial for negative or not-integer numbers (at least I think...)

well it seems there is possible to define factorial for complex numbers:

factorial from mathworld
