FCM0U53: Family Factorial Fun! ANSWER

Ready for the answer to this week's Mystery Monday puzzle? See it after the jump!

The inspiration for this week's puzzle came from a Facebook post.

Both tis post, and the puzzle take advantage of the fact that the exclamation point has a very specific meaning in the world of math, that isn't very well known to the average person. 5! or 5 factorial actually means 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5, or 120. So if the last three digits of the coords are 5! and 6! that makes the full coords N 35° 38.120, E 139° 52.720.

At the final coords you find the reason that the kids are so excited to get going... the coords are for the front gate of Tokyo Disney!

The Tokyo Disney Resort opened in 1983 and was the first Disney park to open outside the United States. It averages more than 17 million visitors a year, making it the second most popular Disney park, after Disney World.

How did you do with the puzzle?
