# One line function for factorial of a number

Factorial of a non-negative integer, is multiplication of all integers smaller than or equal to n.

```Example :

Factorial of 6 is 6 * 5 * 4 * 3 * 2 * 1 which is 720.```

We can find the factorial of a number in one line with the help of Ternary operator or commonly known as Conditional operator in recursion.

## C++

 `// C++ program to find factorial of given number ` `#include ` ` `  `int` `factorial(``int` `n) ` `{ ` `    ``// single line to find factorial ` `    ``return` `(n==1 || n==0) ? 1: n * factorial(n - 1);  ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver Code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``int` `num = 5; ` `    ``printf` `(``"Factorial of %d is %d"``, num, factorial(num)); ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

## Java

 `// Java program to find factorial of given number ` ` `  `import` `java.io.*; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` ` `  `    ``static` `int` `factorial(``int` `n) ` `    ``{ ` `         `  `        ``// single line to find factorial ` `        ``return` `(n == ``1` `|| n == ``0``) ? ``1` `: n *  ` `                                ``factorial(n - ``1``); ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args) ` `    ``{ ` `         `  `        ``int` `num = ``5``; ` `         `  `        ``System.out.println(``"Factorial of "` `+ num +  ` `                           ``" is "` `+ factorial(num)); ` `    ``} ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed by Ajit. `

## Python3

 `# Python3 program to find ` `# factorial of given number ` ` `  `def` `factorial(n): ` `     `  `    ``# single line to ` `    ``# find factorial ` `    ``return` `1` `if` `(n ``=``=` `1` `or` `n ``=``=` `0``) ``else` `n ``*` `factorial(n ``-` `1``); ` ` `  `# Driver Code ` `num ``=` `5``; ` `print``(``"Factorial of"``, num, ` `      ``"is"``, factorial(num)); ` ` `  `# This is contributed by mits `

## C#

 `// C# program to find factorial ` `// of given number ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `GFG  ` `{ ` ` `  `    ``// Function to calculate factorial ` `    ``static` `int` `factorial(``int` `n) ` `    ``{ ` `         `  `        ``// single line to find factorial ` `        ``return` `(n == 1 || n == 0) ? ` `                ``1 : n * factorial(n - 1); ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``public` `static` `void` `Main() ` `    ``{ ` `         `  `        ``int` `num = 5; ` `        ``Console.WriteLine(``"Factorial of "` `+ num +  ` `                        ``" is "` `+ factorial(num)); ` `    ``} ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed by vt_m. `

Output :

``` Factorial of 5 is 120
```
