COMMENTS

a(4) = 8 is the largest number whose factorial can be stored as a 16-bit unsigned integer.

a(5) = 12 is the largest number whose factorial can be stored as a 32-bit unsigned integer.

a(7) = 34 is the largest number whose factorial can be stored as an IEEE single-precision floating-point number (limit is just under 2^128).

a(10) = 170 is the largest number whose factorial can be stored as an IEEE double-precision floating-point number (limit is just under 2^1024).

a(14) = 1754 is the largest number whose factorial can be stored in common implementations of quadruple-precision floating-point numbers.
