%N Positive integers b such that more than one prime factor p of b attains the maximum of (p-1)*v_p(b) where v_p(b) is the valuation of b at p.

%C Given b, the number of trailing zeros at the end of the base-b representation of x! is asymptotic to x/M where M is the maximum over p|b of (p-1)*v_p(b).

%C Usually only one prime p attains the maximum and then the number is v_p(x!)/v_p(b) for all but finitely many x.

%C But for b=12,45,80,90,..., at least two v_p(x!) must be computed. For example: if b=12 then for x=2006 there are 998 trailing zeros due to v_3 but for x=2007 there are 999 due to v_2.

%e Example: for b=90 we have (p-1)*v_p(b) = 1, 4, 4 for p = 2, 3, 5 respectively so the maximum of 4 is attained twice (p=3 and p=5).
