I am trying to prove something and I am on the right track (I think). But I need help on how to accurately describe what I want to do mathematically. Further explanation in the comments.

First of all, this is only a draft I will make it prettier and add explonations to the steps later!

So my Idea was something like this:

5\^5 >= 2\^2 \* 3\^3

= 5\*5\*5\*5\*5 >= 2\*2\*3\*3\*3

so we have 5 factors on both sides and since 2+3 = 5 each of them have to be less or equal to 5.

therefore the right side must be less or equal to 5\^5.

But I dont know how to write down the "we have n factors on both sides" step in proper math

(also: no clue what flair to use, im sorry)
