Here's a strategy I use for the awesome topic "Post more bigger numbers".

For the N872yt3r sequence, take a number, X. Let's say X = 2, just so my calculator doesn't explode. (Try doing this with 8)

First, you add it to itself: 2+2=4.

Then multiply the result by itself and X: 4*2*4=32.

Then do that to the power of 2, 4, 2*4 (8) and itself (round it if you get an e+y on your calculator): 149088121440417.

Then find the ** factorial** (Ugh) *Gulp*: Awww... my calculator exploded. Someone find the factorial of 149088121440417.

(Wolfram-Alpha can't do it!)

OK, so the N872yt3r equivalent to 2 is... 149088121440417!.

And that's why on the post "Post more bigger numbers" we usually put a formula like this, not an actual number...

Hi;

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

Those numbers still cannot compare to numbers like Graham's number.

Then try putting Graham's number into the N872yt3r Sequence!

The last number there is still much, much larger than the n872t3r equivalent of the Graham's number.
