# Find the factorial of a number coderinme

#### Find the factorial of number

Before Find the factorial, We should know that the factorial function (symbol: !) means to multiply a series of descending natural numbers.
Examples:
4! = 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 24
5! = 5 * 4 * 3 * 2 * 1 = 120
So the rule is: n! = n × (n−1)!
Which just says “the factorial of any number is that number times the factorial of (1 smaller than that number)
Zero Factorial is interesting … it is generally agreed that 0! = 1.
In mathematics, the factorial of a non-negative integer n, denoted by n!, is the product of all positive integers less than or equal to n
Let’s code to Find the factorial

``````
#!/bin/bash

if [ \$# -lt 1 ]; then
echo "Usage: \$0 num"
exit 1
fi
let end=\$1-1
num=\$1
for i in `seq 1 \$end`; do
let num*=\$i
done
echo \$num``````

Output will be: for more Linux questiom
