Surely if you write it out , only 3 is used.
3x3x3x3x...etc

That was not a given, hence when written out you come to 4321x4320x 4319 etc, etc.
So, what I am arguing is that as characters to work with, only 1234 were given.

I'm no mathematician so I may well have the terminology wrong but isn't the '!' an 'operation'? That's what I'd understood and it was one of the first things I thought of as a possible solution.
