What explanation this a function representing the math factorial.
You provide a parameter n:
if n est lower than 2 the factorial is 1 (return by the function).
in other case you multiply previous factoriel value by n (f *= n <=> f =
And you decrement n by 1 (f -=1 <=> f = f - 1).
This gives n*(n-)*(n-2).... general formula for factorial.
