Representation of numbers with four 4's

Remark

There is a convention I applied to identities below, especially for the numbers beyond 100. As the table grew, some awkward formulas became more common. In order to simplify the entries and shorten the file that contains this page, I introduced several shorthands as listed below. These are used to express numbers with a single 4:

  • [4] = 1
  • [4!!] = [24!1/16] = 30
  • [30] = 5
  • 5! = 120
  • [120] = 10
  • [10] = 3
  • 3! = 6
  • [(6!)] = 26

where brackets denote the whole part function. ([x] is the largest integer not exceeding x.)

Now, let's agree to use {1},{30},{5},{120},{3} as substitutes for the corresponding formulas. Thus for example, {3} means 3 expressed as [[[4!!]!]]. Similarly, {5} and {120} stand for 5 and 120, respectively, in terms of the just described expressions.
