# Representation of numbers with three 3's

Remark: To simplify expressions, let's agree on the following notations that designated quantities expressible with a single 3:

• {1} =  = 1
• {2} = [3!] = 2
• {50} = [((3!)!)!] = 50

For example, {1}·{2} + 3 stands for ·[3!] + 3 = 5.

For natural x, G(x+1) = x!. In general, G(x+1) = xG(x). The G function is defined by where x could be complex with the real part greater than 0. • Funny Arithmetic
