Java Guava | factorial(int n) method of IntMath Class with Examples

The factorial(int n) method of Guava’s IntMath Class returns the product of the first n positive integers, which is n!.

Syntax:

public static int factorial(int n)

Parameter: The method accepts only one parameter n which is of integer type and is to be used to find the factorial.

Return Value: This method return following values:

  • This method returns 1 if n is 0.
  • This method returns product of the first n positive integers if the result fits in a int.
  • This method returns Integer.MAX_VALUE if the result does not fit in a int.

Exceptions: The method factorial(int n) throws IllegalArgumentException if n is negative.

        int n1 = 10;
  
        // Using factorial(int n) method of
        // Guava's IntMath class
        int ans1 = IntMath.factorial(n1);
  
        System.out.println("factorial of "
                           + n1 + " is : "
                           + ans1);
  
        int n2 = 12;
  
        // Using factorial(int n) method of
        // Guava's IntMath class
        int ans2 = IntMath.factorial(n2);
  
        System.out.println("factorial of "
                           + n2 + " is : "
                           + ans2);
    }
}
