Nvm...

Look:

1*2*3*...*30 = 30! Right?

Without even calculating you can find the answer...

Any number 30 and below will still be able to divide evenly to 30! because their number is being multiplied with 30!

But when you add the extra one,

You will always have a remainder of 1 when dividing with numbers 30 and below.

**So that means numbers above 30 can be divisible to 30!**

Don't you love that when you answer a though question you feel so smart. But you feel so dumb having to put it onto the forum. lol
