# 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.
