#### Solution Preview

First, note that for any positive integer n, the number of consecutive 0's at the end of n^3 is three times the number of consecutive 0's at the end of n itself. Thus we first determine the number of consecutive 0's at the end of 50! (and then multiply that number by 3).

Every 0 at the end of a positive integer stems from a factor of 10, which in turn stems from a ...
