What is the largest number you can form using four 2s. That is 2, 2, 2 & 2. You may do whatever you want with them, use whatever mathematical operator etc.

Say two raised to twenty second power of 2 😉

Can we generalize this for max value using two variables?

    The max value is 2222 ! (factorial (2222))

    if the factorial function is not allowed… then the max value will be 2^222

    is there any other max value?

    How about 2^(2^22)? Is it bigger than 2222! ?

    Then, how about [2^(2^22)]! ? Or We may go on adding factorials 😉 and never end the story!
