### Limit of the sequence $\{n^n/n!\}$, is this sequence bounded, convergent and eventually monotonic?

I am trying to check whether or not the sequence $$a_{n} =\left\{\frac{n^n}{n!}\right\}_{n=1}^{\infty}$$ is bounded, convergent and ultimately monotonic (there exists an $N$ such that for all $n\geq N$...

### Did I derive a new form of the gamma function?

I wish to extend the factorial to non-integer arguments in a unique way, given the following conditions: $n!=n(n-1)!$ $1!=1$ To anyone interested in viewing the final form before reading the whole ...

### Combinatorial proof that $\frac{({10!})!}{{10!}^{9!}}$ is an integer

I need help to prove that the quantity of this division : $\dfrac{({10!})!}{{10!}^{9!}}$ is an integer number, using combinatorial proof
### Finding all the numbers that fit $x! + y! = z!$
I have the formula $x! + y! = z!$ and I'm looking for positive integers that make it true. Upon inspection it seems that x = y = 1 and z = 2 is the only solution. The problem is how to show it. ...
