it should still fix some issue You don't have to use recursion. Because C doesn't support so-called optimization of tail recursion calls, you should avoid recursion where it could be replaced by a simple loop. But C does support recursion at all, and such factorial is the simpliest example of recursive function, if we don't pay attention to the fact that it is not an optimal code.
Simpliest usecase of recursion where it is actually needed could be a directory tree go-round. If you try to replace recursion with a loop in the latter case, you will get much less readable code and you're still gonna need a stack with O(N) memory where N is maximum directory nesting level, so, in most common cases, you wouldn't achieve anything useful from this optimisation attempt. code : ## Factorial of a number using recursion

wish of those help It loses one of the things that makes a recursive function recursive in that it has no exit condition.
All recursive solutions must satisfy three rules or properties: A recursive solution must contain a base case. A recursive solution must contain a recursive case. A recursive solution must make progress toward the base case. ## Finding the factorial using recursion with the BigInteger Class

To fix this issue So consider the following program-segment! I've tried to use the basic recursion function to determine the factorial of a number, but now using the BigInteger class. , There's an error in the code, you should put
code :
``````  BigInteger factz = BigInteger.valueOf(a);

it helps some times ## Factorial of a number using recursion without if - else & return statement in C

hop of those help? Everyone in the solutions are giving functions with if else statements and return statement which i don't want . I have clearly mentioned that there should be no if else and return statement . that's why in my program i also didn't use it ## I've tried writing a python code for finding a factorial using recursion

I wish this help you You can start with this question: what is my function doing when it is called with argument n-1 (assume n-1 >= 1).
It returns nothing. Therefore n*fact(n-1) means - multiply n by nothing.
