# Find last digit in factorial

• Difficulty Level : Medium
• Last Updated : 26 Feb, 2021

Given a number n, we need to find the last digit in factorial n.

Input : n = 4
Output : 4
4! = 4 * 3 * 2 * 1. =  24.  Last digit of 24 is 4.

Input : n = 5
Output : 5
5! = 5*4 * 3 * 2 * 1. =  120.  Last digit of 120 is 0.

A Naive Solution is to first compute fact = n!, then return the last digit of the result by doing fact % 10.  This solution is inefficient and causes integer overflow for even slightly large value of n.

An Efficient Solution is based on the observation that all factorials after 5 have 0 as last digit.

1! = 1
2! = 2
3! = 6
4! = 24
5! = 120
6! = 720
