The problem is that the factorial value is updating in a `while loop`

I think that is the problem why. Here is the code

while (true) { System.out.print("Enter a positive integer: "); n = sc.nextInt(); if (n > 0) { System.out.print(n + "! = "); for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) { factorial = factorial * i; for (int j = 1; j <= n; j++) { if (j == n) System.out.printf("%d", j); else System.out.printf("%d x ", j); } System.out.println(""); System.out.println("The factorial of " + n + " is " + factorial); } } else { System.out.println("Invalid input"); break; } }

Okay, so here is the problem when the first input is 5

`The factorial of 5 is: 120`

But on the second input it goes like this when I tried to input like for example 4

`The factorial of 4 is: 2880`

it goes higher even though the factorial of 4 is 24

## Answer

Just add `factorial = 1;`

after the else block.
