What Is Factorial?
A factorial is represented by an integer and an exclamation tag. In math concepts, factorial is a multiplication function of natural numbers .
It multiplies the number by every noreal number that is less than it .
Symbolically, it is represented as "!".
The function is used, among other things, to find the "n" way elements can be positioned .
To find the factorial of any given number, change the exact value for n in the given equation :
n! = n × (n-1) × (n-2) × (n-3) × ….× 3 × 2 × 1
The expansion of the formula provides the numbers to be multiplied to each other to find the factorial of the number.
We can also figure out 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)!
8! Factorial = 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 8 × 7! = 40320
What are Factorials Used For?
The best use of factorial is in Combinations and Permutations.
Example : Determine how to arrange letters without repeating?
