• using this same idea you should be able to figure out how many different algorithms there are to solve this problem. anybody have an idea how you could do that?
• It would be quite easy if you are in high school
you just have to calculate the factorial(n!) of the number which means that you have to multiply the number to all the natural numbers less than it.
ex. 5! would be 5 * 4 * 3 * 2 * 1 or 120
6! would be 6 * 5 * 4 * 3 * 2 * 1 or 720
