The factorial of a positive integer is defined to be the product of that integer times
the factorial of the next smaller nonnegative integer. We use the notation n! to
express the factorial of the integer n. Thus the factorial of 3 (written 3!) is 3 × (2) =
in two's complement notation." Multiple variables of the same type can normally
be declared in the same declaration statement. For example, the statement int
Height, Width; would declare both Height and Width to be variables of type
Thus 9 (mod 7) is 2 because 9 + 7 produces a remainder of 2. Similarly, 24 (mod
7) is 3 because 24 + 7 produces a remainder of 3, and 14 (mod 7) is 0 because
14 + 7 produces a remainder of 0. Note that x (mod m) is x itself if x is an integer ...
