Problem Description:

How to use method for calculating Factorial of a number?

Solution:

This example shows the way of using method for calculating Factorial of 9(nine) numbers.

public class MainClass {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      for (int counter = 0; counter <= 10; counter++){
         System.out.printf("%d! = %d\n", counter,
         factorial(counter));
      }
   }
   public static long factorial(long number) {
      if (number <= 1)
         return 1;
      else
         return number * factorial(number - 1);
   }
}

Result:

The above code sample will produce the following result.

0! = 1
1! = 1
2! = 2
3! = 6
4! = 24
5! = 120
6! = 720
7! = 5040
8! = 40320
9! = 362880
10! = 3628800
