return factValue * printFactorial(factValue - factCounter); I assume that you should be using the "next" values instead of these. Edit: Also note that the function takes two parameters and is void. Returning factValue times void doesn't make sense....

Yes it is. But since it's recursion, it works the opposite way. I once had an interviewer explain it to me like this : Say, for fact(5) : - fact(5) = 5 * fact(4) - fact(4) = 4 * fact(3) - fact(3) = 3 * fact(2) - fact(2) = 2...

This is the simplest I could get it: int sum_fac(int target, int counter) { return (target == counter) ? target : counter * (1 + sum_fac(target, counter + 1)); } Which when called like this: int main() { for (int i = 1; i < 10; i++) { printf("%d: %d\n",...

You need to use the which argument in TukeyHSD; "listing terms in the fitted model for which the intervals should be calculated". This is needed because you have a non-factor variable in the model ('baseline'). The variable causes trouble when included, which is default when which is not specified. ANC...

i and fact(i+1) are both ints, so you're performing integer division. Since i < fact(i+1), each such term will produce a zero. You had the right idea with defining sign as a double, but since / and * have the same precedence, you're first performing an integer division and only...

java,arrays,algorithm,permutation,factorial

Creating (or printing) the permutations of an array is much easier done as a combination of recursively and iteratively than purely iteratively. There are surely iterative ways to do it, but it is particularly simple with a combination. Specifically, note that there are by definition N! permutations of a length...

Your code is an Oz script. It can be used in the interactive Mozart IDE (Emacs). The online compiler expects an Oz program, i.e. a functor definition. Try this code: functor import Application System define fun {Fact N} fun{Aux N Nmax FactNminus1} if N > Nmax then nil else (FactNminus1*N)|{Aux...

Is there a difference in the order that the multiplications are done in a recursive factorial function depending on whether the last return is in the form fact(n-1) * n compared to the form n * fact(n-1) ? No there will be no difference The Commutative Laws say we...

Sure. you forgot to return a value at the very the end of recursion(). Without that return statement, the use of recursion() as an argument ot printf() invokes undefined behaviour. To elaborate, only for the case when x == 0 is TRUE, you're using a return statement to return a...

This is the Taylor's series development of exp(-x). Recognizing this gives you a good opportunity to check your result against math.exp(-x). Simple syntax improvements You don't need an 'else' after the while. Just add the code to be run after the loop at the same indentation level as before the...

It returns 0 because count will be finally 0 in your last loop. Loop will execute for count = 1 and you will multiply hold by 0 since you subtract 1 from count before multiplying. You have to subtract 1 after multiplication: def factorial(x): hold = 1 count = x...

Using: for(var i = num - 1; i > 0; i--) { return num * i; } It will return num*(num-1) value. Since it will return the value in the first iteration. Instead use: Using recursion: function FirstFactorial(num) { if(num==1) return num; else return num*(FirstFactorial(num-1)) } or: fact=num; for(var i...

There's a factorial function in scipy.misc which allows element-wise computations on arrays: >>> from scipy.misc import factorial >>> factorial(mat) array([[ 1., 2., 6.], [ 2., 6., 24.]]) The function returns an array of float values and so can compute "larger" factorials up to the accuracy floating point numbers allow: >>>...

The expression fact = fact * c; multiplies fact by c and stores the result in fact. Thus the following happens when the code is run: At the start , fact is 1. On the first iteration it gets multiplied by 1 the result of which is 1. On the...

Once we "reach" the fact(1,1), it will "return" to the calling recursive iteration and proceed to the part R is R1*X of that iteration, with R1=1. Then will return again to a previous level and so on. Let's look at a non-trivial iteration: fact(3,R) : X <- 3, X1 <-...

479001600*13=6227020800, or, 0x17328CC00 in hex. This is too big for 32bits. 1*0x100000000=0x100000000 0x17328CC00-0x100000000=0x7328CC00, or 1932053504 in decimal. So, no news here. Put another way, your results are 1 in EDX and 1932053504 in EAX. EDX contains the higher-order 32 bits of the result, so multiply by 2^32, ie. 0x100000000: 1...

(This answer is a spin-off of the discussion of modular factorials in the comments.) Computing modular factorials by taking mods at each step is definitely the way to go and can be used in conjunction with Wilsons's Theorem to give an (impractical) way to test for primes: def modFact(k,n): #computes...

You do it the usual Prolog way - by defining a recursive rule that covers two clauses: When the number is 0, its factorial is 1 - This can be done with a simple fact. When the number is greater than zero, compute Number-1, obtain its factorial, and multiplying the...

Leaving aside style questions and the fact that storing a big integer in decimal digits is rather wasteful, the problem is that you never reset j. Because of this, the loop while(index<no) { x=a[index]*i+carry; a[index]=x%10; j++; if(x!=0) carry=x/10; index++; } means that j will at least double in every multiplication,...

No, because is a recursive function so, when last function end ("all") then all previous console.log will print in reverse order (really is not reverse order, it's the correct order because is a recursive function), for example, we have the 5 steps that you say: (n=4, n=3 ... n=0): f4...

This is because BigInteger is immutable which means that its value does not change. So first.add(x) will create a new BigInteger containing the computations result, i.e. just reassign the result to first, like first = first.add(...).

The condition in the for loop is a while condition: int i = 1; while(i == n) { //loopbody fact=fact*i; i++; } So it will only do anything when n==1, plus the loop can only run 0 or 1 times....

The expression return input *factorial(input--); does a post increment of input. The value passed to factorial is still input. Not only that, you are also in undefined behavior territory since, input is also used in the expression. Given input = 3, input *factorial(input--); would easily be: 2 *factorial(3); or 3...

If you do not require cancellation beyond exact numbers, this should do: var x = [3, 4, 6, 4]; var y = [4, 7, 3, 2]; for(var i in x) { for(var j in y) { if(x[i]==y[j]) { x.splice(i,1); y.splice(j,1); } } } console.log(x); console.log(y); But in case you are...

As others have said you can use libraries that support larger numbers, or just don't allow values that are too big. Note that if you want to handle very large values you might need to use a loop rather than a recursive algorithm because recursion can cause a Stack Overflow....

Wrong (or at least: odd) things in your code: f is a number. You seem to expect your function to return an array, though? i <= params.length should be i < params.length. Array indices start at 0, and end at length-1. You are multiplying your accumulator variable with params[j] -...

You are essentially doing this wrong. See the R help page for factorial: ‘factorial(x)’ (x! for non-negative integer ‘x’) is defined to be ‘gamma(x+1)’ and ‘lfactorial’ to be ‘lgamma(x+1)’.
