Not to be confused with tethrafact.

Tetrafact is the mixed factorial of 4, written as 4*, and equal to \(((1+2) \times 3)^{4} = 6,561\).[1] The term was coined by SpongeTechX.

It is also an output of the Exploding Tree Function: \(E(3) = 6,561\). It is also the number of ways to add 11 ordinals.


The name of this number is based on the Greek prefix "tetra-" and the word "factorial".
