What Is Factorial?
A factorial is symbolized by an integer and an exclamation tag. In Mathematics, factorial is a multiplication operation of natural numbers .
It multiplies the number by every organic number that is less than it .
Symbolically, it is symbolized as "!".
The function is used, among other things, to find the "n" way things can be arranged .
To find the factorial of any given number, substitute the exact value for n in the given formula :
n! = n × (n-1) × (n-2) × (n-3) × ….× 3 × 2 × 1
The expansion of the formula provides numbers to be multiplied together with each other to obtain the factorial of the number.
We can also determine a factorial from the prior one. The factorial of any number is that number replicated the factorial of (that number minus 1).
So the rule is : n! = n × (n−1)!
55! Factorial = 55 x 54 x 53 x 52 x ... x 3 x 2 x 1 = 55 × 54! = 12696403353658275925965100847566516959580321051449436762275840000000000000
What are Factorials Used For?
