Find Nth term of the series 1, 8, 54, 384…
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 15 Mar, 2021

Given a number N. The task is to write a program to find the Nth term in the below series: 
 

1, 8, 54, 384...

Examples: 
 

Input : 3
Output : 54
For N = 3
Nth term = ( 3*3) * 3!
         = 54

Input : 2 
Output : 8

 

On observing carefully, the Nth term in the above series can be generalized as: 
 

Nth term = ( N*N ) * ( N! )

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
 



C++




// CPP program to find N-th term of the series:
// 1, 8, 54, 384...
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// calculate factorial of N
int fact(int N)
{
    int i, product = 1;
    for (i = 1; i <= N; i++)
        product = product * i;
    return product;
}
 
// calculate Nth term of series
int nthTerm(int N)
{
    return (N * N) * fact(N);
}
 
// Driver Function
int main()
{
    int N = 4;
 
    cout << nthTerm(N);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to find N-th term of the series:
// 1, 8, 54, 384...
 
import java.io.*;
 
// Main class for main method
class GFG {
    public static int fact(int N)
    {
        int i, product = 1;
        // Calculate factorial of N
        for (i = 1; i <= N; i++)
            product = product * i;
        return product;
    }
    public static int nthTerm(int N)
    {
        // By using above formula
        return (N * N) * fact(N);
    }
 
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        int N = 4; // 4th term is 384
 
        System.out.println(nthTerm(N));
    }
}

Python 3




# Python 3 program to find
# N-th term of the series:
# 1, 8, 54, 384...
 
# calculate factorial of N
def fact(N):
     
    product = 1
    for i in range(1, N + 1):
        product = product * i
    return product
 
# calculate Nth term of series
def nthTerm(N):
    return (N * N) * fact(N)
 
# Driver Code
if __name__ =="__main__":
    N = 4
    print(nthTerm(N))

C#




// C# program to find N-th

using System;
 
class GFG
{
public static int fact(int N)
{
    int i, product = 1;
     
    // Calculate factorial of N
    for (i = 1; i <= N; i++)
        product = product * i;
    return product;
}
 
public static int nthTerm(int N)
{
    // By using above formula
    return (N * N) * fact(N);
}
 
// Driver Code
public static void Main(String[] args)
{
    int N = 4; // 4th term is 384
 
    Console.WriteLine(nthTerm(N));
}
}

PHP




<?php
// PHP program to find N-th
/// term of the series:
// 1, 8, 54, 384...
 
// calculate factorial of N
function fact($N)
{
    $product = 1;
    for ($i = 1; $i <= $N; $i++)
        $product = $product * $i;
    return $product;
}
 
// calculate Nth term of series
function nthTerm($N)
{
    return ($N * $N) * fact($N);
}
 
// Driver Code
$N = 4;
 
echo nthTerm($N);

Javascript




<script>
 
// JavaScript program to find N-th term of the series:
// 1, 8, 54, 384...
 
// calculate factorial of N
function fact( N)
{
    let i, product = 1;
    for (i = 1; i <= N; i++)
        product = product * i;
    return product;
}
 
// calculate Nth term of series
function nthTerm( N)
{
    return (N * N) * fact(N);
}
 
// Driver Function
 
    let N = 4;
    document.write(nthTerm(N));

</script>
Output: 
384
