# Factorial of number

JavaScript, Math, Algorithm, Recursion · Dec 28, 2020 Calculates the factorial of a number.

• Use recursion.
• If `n` is less than or equal to `1`, return `1`.
• Otherwise, return the product of `n` and the factorial of `n - 1`.
• Throw a `TypeError` if `n` is a negative number.
```const factorial = n =>
n < 0
? (() => {
throw new TypeError('Negative numbers are not allowed!');
})()
: n <= 1
? 1
: n * factorial(n - 1);```
`factorial(6); // 720`
