Before going to the program first let us understand what is a Factorial of a Number?

Factorial of a Number:

The factorial of a Number n, denoted by n! is the product of all positive integers less than or equal to n.

The value of 0! is 1 according to the convention for an empty product.

For example,

5! = 5 * 4 * 3 * 2 * 1 = 120

## Program code for Factorial of a Number in Python:

```# Python program to find the factorial of a number #Define a factorial and loop variable
fact = 1
i = 1 # To take input from the user
num = int(input("Enter a number: ")) # check if the number is negative or positive
if num < 0: print("Sorry, factorial does not exist for negative numbers")
else: while i <= num: fact = fact*i i = i + 1 print("The factorial of", num, "is", fact)
```

## Working:

• First, the computer reads the number to find the factorial of the number from the user.
• Then using a while loop the value of ‘i’ is multiplied by the value of ‘fact’.
• The loop continues till the value of ‘num’. Finally, the factorial value of the given number is printed.
