Check if a given number is factorial of any number

  • Last Updated : 25 Mar, 2021
Geek Week

Given a number n, the task is to determine whether n can be a factorial of some number x
Examples: 
 

Input: N = 24
Output: Yes
Explanation: 4! = 24

Input: N = 25
Output: No

 

Approach: 
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
 

C++




// C++ implementation for
// the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to check if
// the given number is a
// factorial of any number
bool isFactorial(int n)
{
  for (int i = 1;; i++) {
    if (n % i == 0) {
      n /= i;
    }
    else {
      break;
    }
  }
 
  if (n == 1) {
    return true;
  }
  else {
    return false;
  }
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
  int n = 24;
 
  bool ans = isFactorial(n);
  if (ans == 1) {
    cout << "Yes\n";
  }
  else {
    cout << "No\n";
  }
 
  return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation for the above approach
class GFG
{
 
    // Function to check if the given number
    // is a factorial of any number
    static boolean isFactorial(int n)
    {
        for (int i = 1;; i++)
        {
            if (n % i == 0)
            {
                n /= i;
            }
            else
            {
                break;
            }
        }
     
        if (n == 1)
        {
            return true;
        }
        else
        {
            return false;
        }
    }
     
    // Driver Code
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
        int n = 24;
        boolean ans = isFactorial(n);
         
        if (ans == true)
        {
            System.out.println("Yes");
        }
        else
        {
            System.out.println("No");
        }
    }
}

    while(True) :
         
        if (n % i == 0) :
            n //= i;
             
        else :
            break;
             
        i += 1;
 
    if (n == 1) :
        return True;
     
    else :
        return False;
 
# Driver Code
if __name__ == "__main__" :
    n = 24;
    ans = isFactorial(n);
     
    if (ans == 1) :
        print("Yes");
 
    else :
        print("No");
