Python | sympy.ff() method

With the help of sympy.ff() method, we can find the Falling factorial. Falling factorial is defined by –

 ff(x, k) = x \cdot (x-1) \cdots (x-k+1)

where x can be arbitrary expression and k is an integer.

Syntax: ff(x, k)

Parameter:
x – It denotes any arbitrary expression.
k – It denotes an integer.

Returns: Returns falling factorial corresponding to the given inputs.

# import sympy 
from sympy import * 
  
x = symbols('x')
k = 5
print("Value of x = {} and k = {}".format(x, k))
   
# Use sympy.ff() method 
ff_x_k = ff(x, k)  
      
print("Falling factorial ff(x, k) : {}".format(ff_x_k))

Output:

Value of x = x and k = 5
Falling factorial ff(x, k) : x*(x - 4)*(x - 3)*(x - 2)*(x - 1)

print("Falling factorial ff(x, k) : {}".format(ff_x_k))

Output:

Value of x = 7 and k = 5
Falling factorial ff(x, k) : 2520
