Nth Catalan numbers in java

Java Programming Java.Util PackageJava8

The nth Catalan number in terms of binomial coefficients is calculated by the formula

(n + k )/k where k varies from 2 to n and n ≥ 0. i.e.

Cn = (2n)!/((n+1)!n!)

Program

public class NthCatalanNumber {
   public static long fact(int i) {
      if(i <= 1) {
         return 1;
      }
      return i * fact(i - 1);
   }
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
      System.out.println("Enter a number :");
      int num = sc.nextInt();
     
      //(2n)!/(n+1)!*n!
      long Cn = (fact(2*num))/(fact(num+1)*fact(num));
      System.out.println("Catalan number :"+Cn);
   }
}

Output

Enter a number :
7
Catalan number :429
