1. What Is a Factorial?
Maybe it's because I'm a math teacher, but when I watched the Olympics I found myself thinking about how many different ways the swimmers could have finished the race. In this video, you'll learn the answer to this question, why it's important and how it lead to the invention of the mathematical operation called the factorial.
2. How to Use Factorial Notation: Process and Examples
Watch this video lesson to learn about factorial notation. Understand what it means so that you can handle it like a pro. Also see what happens when we divide factorials.
3. Factorial Practice Problems
While the definition of factorial isn't complicated, it's easy to make them trickier by throwing a lot of them together and adding in some fractions. Test your skills here with some algebraic examples that make you use factorials without many numbers.
