67. 2*2*2*2*2*3*3*3*3*3
68. Well, I know 6! = 720, so 6! x 7 = 5040

(I knew 7! off by heart, though)

Devante`,
If you meant the prime factors are 2 and 3, you're right.
Well done

Sorry for the unclear answer, I forgot to extend on my answer. In a test, I would've lost a mark for that. :\

Yep, that's what I meant.

Wow... they estimated the distance to the sun with a margin of error of 30 metres!?!
o_o
Doesn't the distance change alot due to gravity?

### Re: 10 second questions

Indeed it does, because our orbit around the sun is slightly elliptical. But their definition of the AU is something like "the radius of an orbit around the sun that would take exactly one year for a complete revolution".

Which is kind of a technical way of saying that it's our average distance from the sun.

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

71. π/1800

I have no idea about the others, but I'll guess that there are ~30 primes from 1 to 100 and ~250 from 1 to 1000.

72) Approximately 746 watts (actually about 745.7) to every horsepower (hp).
73) Originally defined as one one-hundredth of the difference between the freezing and boiling temperatures of water under an atmospheric pressure that balances a 760-mm (29.92-inch) column of mercury.  Now defined as the fraction 1/273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature of the triple point of water.
