 A034258 Write n! as a product of n numbers, n! = k(1)*k(2)*...*k(n) with k(1) <= k(2) <= ..., in all possible ways; a(n) = max value of k(1). 3

FORMULA If p is prime, a(p-1) = a(p). - Bernard Schott, Oct 24 2021 EXAMPLE 3! = 6 = 1*2*3 is the only possible factorization, so a(3) = 1. 27! = 8^4 * 9^6 * 10^6 * 11^2 * 12 * 13^2 * 14^3 * 17 * 19 * 23, with 4 + 6 + 6 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 27 factors, which is the required number. Since the first factor is 8, a(27) >= 8. In fact no larger value can be obtained and a(27) = 8. CROSSREFS Cf. A034259, A034260.
