What Is Factorial?

A factorial is symbolized by an integer and an exclamation mark. In Mathematics, factorial is a multiplication process 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 pieces can be arranged .

Factorial Formula

To find the factorial of any given number, exchange the exact value for n in the given way :

n! = n × (n-1) × (n-2) × (n-3) × ….× 3 × 2 × 1

The expansion of the formula provides the numbers to be multiplied collectively to find the factorial of the number.

We can also determine 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)!

Example :
56! Factorial = 56 x 55 x 54 x 53 x ... x 3 x 2 x 1 = 56 × 55! = 710998587804863451854045647463724949736497978881168458687447040000000000000
