This programming tutorial will teach you how to write a factorial of any given number. Factorial of a non-negative integer is denoted by n!, which is product of all positive number less than or equal to n. For example

4! = 4 * 3 *2 * 1 that is equal to 24, and factorial of 0! is 0 always.

**Example** : A program to find the factorial of any given number

import java.util.Scanner; class Factorial { public static void main(String args[]) { int fact=1; System.out.println("Enter the number to find the factorial"); Scanner sin=new Scanner(System.in); int f=sin.nextInt(); for(int i=1;i<=f;i++) { fact=fact*i; } System.out.println("factorial of "+f+" is = " +fact); } }

**Description : **In the above example suppose user entered 5,
then 5 is stored in scanner class object and using for loop, iterating the
loop from 1 to 5(i<=f) until it reaches 5 multiplying each value of i with fact
value i.e. 1 and storing it in fact variable. Loop will iterate five times (
1=1*1, 2=1*2 ......) and stored in fact variable, when the value of i become 5
control come out from the loop and print the value of fact.

**Output : **Compiling and executing the above program.
