No of zeros after 270!:
No of factors giving 2=270/2=135
No of factors giving 4=270/4=67
No of factors giving 8=270/8=33
No of factors giving 16=270/16=16
No of factors giving 32=270/32=8
No of factors giving 64=270/64=4
No of factors giving 128=270/128=2
No of factors giving 256=270/256=1

No of factors giving 5=270/5=54
No of factors giving 25=270/25=10
No of factors giving 125=270/125=2

hence 270! is divisible by (5 to the power 66) * (2 to the power of 266)

hence it is divisible by 10 to the power of 66
hence no of zeros in 270!=66

to find the number of zeros at end of any factorial given:
1.so,270!,
first find which power of five is nearest to 270.
so,5 power 3 is 225.it is nearest to 270.
therefore,divide 270 by both 5 and 225.
i.e. 270/225=1.6....,so leave the numbers after point.take only 1.now 270/5=54. so ,there r total 1+54=55 zeros in the result of 270!.
