comment Calculate the Determinant?
I neatened this answer up a bit, and also corrected the arithmetic.

comment Have you seen this formula for factorial?
This works then: $n!=\prod_{p^a \leq n} p^{\lfloor n/p^a \rfloor}$ where the sum is over all primes $p$ and $a \geq 1$ such that $p^a \leq n$.

comment Have you seen this formula for factorial?
I'm wondering if it can be fixed by using something like "prime power p" or something similar. It's still not right, but a correction term perhaps could be introduced.

Wrong, as in it's not right. E.g., $4!=24$ and $\prod_{p \leq 4} p^{\lfloor 4/p \rfloor}=2^2 \times 3=12$.

The first formula is wrong for $n \geq 4$.

comment Randomly partitioning a set
I think the question is: Choose $x$ subsets $M_1,M_2,\ldots,M_x \subseteq L$, each uniformly at random from all $\binom{|L|}{|L|/2}$ subsets of size $|L|/2$. What is the probability that $\cup_{i=1}^x M_i \neq L$? (Hopefully we have $|L| \equiv 0 \pmod 2$.)

Ah you're right; they are labelled digraphs.

If bidirectional edges are disallowed, then it's unique (in this case cycles must have length $\geq 3$).
