### What is factorial of 3?

Definition of factorial of 3

The factorial is a basically a quantity which is defined for integer value 3 which is greater than or equal to 0.

The factorial is nothing but the product of all intergers which is less than or equal to n but it is greater than or equal to 1. By definition we can say that the factorial value of 0 is equal to 1. We can not have negative integers factorial as defined. We can see that factorial is the result of multiplying a sequence of descending natural numbers. We can say that factorial of 3 is calculated as 3 X 2 X 1

### Factorial Formula for 3 For 3 is natural number which is greater than or equal to 1. Then we can have the formula as

3! = 3 x (3-1) X (3-2) X (3-3) ..... 3 X 2 X 1

### Factorial examples

Example 1:-

What is the factorial of 4?

Solution :-

We know that factorial formula for 4 is
4! = 4 × (4-1) X (4-2) X (4-3) X (4-4) ..... 4 X 3 X 2 X 1

So the factorial of 4 is

4! = 4 X (4-1) X (4-2) X (4-3) X (4-4)

4! = 4 X 3 X 2 X 1

4! = 24

Example 2:-

What is the factorial of 5?

Solution :-

We know that factorial formula for 4 is
5! = 5 × (5-1) X (5-2) X (5-3) X (5-4) X (5-5) ..... 5 X 4 X 3 X 2 X 1

So the factorial of 5 is

5! = 5 X (5-1) X (5-2) X (5-3) X (5-4) X (5-5)

5! = 5 X 4 X 3 X 2 X 1

5! = 120

Example 3:-

What is the factorial of 6?

Solution :-

We know that factorial formula for 6 is
6! = 6 × (6-1) X (6-2) X (6-3) X (6-4) X (6-5) X (6-6) ..... 6 X 5 X 4 X 3 X 2 X 1

So the factorial of 6 is

6! = 6 X (6-1) X (6-2) X (6-3) X (6-4) X (6-5) X (6-6)

6! = 6 X 5 X 4 X 3 X 2 X 1

6! = 720
