Factorial

OVERVIEW

Factorial is a number accompanied by an exclamation mark. For example, four factorial is written as 4! which simply means 4*3*2*1 = 24.

The mathematical formula is as follow

Now if we are given number 5 in our case, it will look like this

Some of the steps taken below are:

  1. Create a function that takes in a number as a parameter
  2. Creating a variable of total by setting it at 0
  3. Create a for loop starting from 1 with condition that if total is not equal to 0 – here we want our total to be 1.
  4. If it’s 1, it will go into the if statement and calculate it accordingly
I’ll give you an idea how the program actually works

Loop count > Total value > Programs > Calculation

  1. For 1 -> Total is 0 -> Else -> Total is 1
  2. For 2 -> Total is 1 -> If -> 1 * 2 = 2
  3. For 3 -> Total is 2 -> If -> 2 * 3 = 6
  4. For 4 -> Total is 6 -> If -> 6 * 4 = 24
  5. For 5 -> Total is 24 -> If -> 24 * 5 = 120
