freeCodeCamp Basic Algorithm: Factorialize a Number

We are back to break down another one of the Basic Algorithm challenges from freeCodeCamp.

Last time we looked at the Reverse a String algorithm. This time we are going to tackle the second challenge, Factorialize a Number.

This one certainly sounds more difficult than the first challenge. What the heck does factorialize¬†even mean? According to my spell check, it isn’t even a word!

When you are a new programmer, the term ‘algorithm’ is shrouded in mystery. The mere mention of it triggers an ominous sense of dread.

Despite what you might think, algorithms aren’t indecipherable puzzles that only people with Computer Science degrees can solve.

Don’t get me wrong, there are some incredibly difficult algorithms out there but you aren’t likely to encounter those as a new programmer.
