C program to calculate the value of nPr
  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 29 Sep, 2018

nPr represents n permutation r and value of nPr is (n!) / (n-r)!.

int fact(int n)
    if (n <= 1)
        return 1;
    return n*fact(n-1);
int nPr(int n, int r)
    return fact(n)/fact(n-r);
int main()
    int n, r;
    printf("Enter n: ");
    scanf("%d", &n);
    printf("Enter r: ");
    scanf("%d", &r);
    printf("%dP%d is %d", n, r, nPr(n, r));
    return 0;
Enter n: 5
Enter r: 2
5P2 is 20
