Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
Here you go, Ray Ray...
In order to calculate the factorial of a number you must do the following:
1. Type your number [8]
2. Hit MATH
3. Scroll to PRB
4. Hit ENTER [The factorial symbol should be either the 1st one on that list or the 4th one]
Longstoryshort, if you want to find the factorial symbol on your TI-83 you must go to MATH. PRB. !. Done
By the way...that factorial is the fastest growing type of function in mathematics, and it is the backbone behind permutation, combinations, and a lot of probability theory.
Have Fun,

Testimonial: "GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!!!!! THANKS!!!!!!!"
Why am I getting an error ( ERR: OVERFLOW) when I try larger numbers, e.g. 123!
You are getting ERR: OVERFLOW because your Calculator cannot handle enormous numbers.
By enormous numbers I mean numbers with more than 100 digits. Other calculators can handle larger numbers...but not by a whole lot (I think the TI89 titanium goes up to 400 digits).
Besides, though, unless you are writing a program on your calculator which needs to store an insanely large number (like the birthday probability scenario) then you won't really need the calculator to know humongous numbers.
By the way...there's a name for the number which is 10^100 (1 followed by 100 zeros). It also is the name of the most visited website on the internet (slightly different spelling, though). Do you know what that name/number is?
If you find that name/number then I've got another thing for ya.

PS. 123! is a number with 206 digits. Your calculator vomits when thinking of such a quantity. Overflow.
