Total times 23 and its multiple appear in 2000! Is 5213
Therefore maximum value of X would be 5213-6=5207

Greatest possible integer value of X can be 88783 because 23 is repeated 88789 times in 2000!

In $2000!$ there are $\lfloor {\frac{2000}{23}}\rfloor=86$ numbers which are divisible by $23$
and $\lfloor{{\frac{2000}{23^2}}}\rfloor=3$ numbers which are divisible by $23^2$
so $23^{89}||2000!$
so the answer would be $83$
it a a part of $Legendre's formula$

Why are you saying it is repeated 88789 times?I know it is wrong but how did you get it?Can you explain?
