How to calculate the factorial of 2
To find 2 factorial, or 2!, simply use the formula that multiplies the number 2 by all positive whole numbers less than it.
Let's look at how to calculate the Factorial of Two :
2! is exactly : 2
Factorial of 2 can be calculated as:
2! = 2 x 1
The number of trailing zeros in 2! is 0
The number of digits in 2 factorial is 1.

What Is Factorial?
A factorial is showed by an integer and an exclamation mark. In math concepts, factorial is a multiplication process of natural numbers .
It multiplies the number by every basic number that is less than it .
Symbolically, it is listed as "!".
The function is used, among other things, to get the "n" way objects can be positioned .
To find the factorial of any given number, change the value for n in the given equation :
n! = n × (n-1) × (n-2) × (n-3) × ….× 3 × 2 × 1
The expansion of the formula gives the numbers to be replicated together with each other to get the factorial of the number.
We can also work out a factorial from the previous one. The factorial of any number is that number multiplied the factorial of (that number minus 1).
So the rule is : n! = n × (n−1)!
2! Factorial = 2 x 1 = 2 × 1! = 2
What are Factorials Used For?
The best use of factorial is in Combinations and Permutations.
Example : Determine how to arrange letters without repeating?
There one way for 1 letter "a":
2 ways for two letters "ab": ab, ba.
There are 6 ways for 3 letters "abc": abc acb cab bac bca.
There are 24 ways for 1234 of the letters "abcd"

1) Can we have factorials for negative numbers ?
Negative number factorials are undefined
2) What Is 0!
Zero factorial or Factorial of 0 is simple, and its own value is corresponding to 1. So, 0! = 1.
