Factorial of a Number using PHP

Factorial of a number is product of all integers from 1 up to the number ( inclusive ).
Factorial of 5 is 1*2*3*4*5 = 120
n! = 1*2*3….n

Factorial using looping

$n1=50; // change this number
for($i=1;$i<=($n1/2); $i++){
	if($n1%$i == 0 )
		echo " $i," ;
echo  $n1 ;
Factorial of an input number through sticky form in PHP using for loop or using recursive function

Using for loop

More details on for loop in PHP.
$n1=5; // change this number 
for ($i=1; $i<=$n1;$i++){
echo "Factorial of $n1 : $factorial";
Factorial of 5 : 120

Asking user input

We can use one sticky form to take user input and calculate the factorial of input number.
echo "<form method=POST action=''>
<input type=text name=n1 value='$n1'> 
<input type=submit value=Submit>
for ($i=1; $i<=$n1;$i++){

echo "Factorial of $n1 : $factorial";

Factorial of a number by using recursive function

Factorial using recursive function
By using recursive function we can call the function itself from within the function.
function fact($n){
$factorial = $n * fact($n-1);
return $factorial;
return 1;		
echo "Factorial of 6 : ".fact(6); 
Output is here
Factorial of 6 : 720
