##### Solution Summary

I have chosen to rewrite the iterative definition of calculating factorial of a number using a recursive procedure. First, the iterative definition of factorial is as follows

For any non-negative integer n, the factorial of n , denoted n! , can be defined [1] [2] by

n! = 1 X 2 X .. X n

where for n=0 the empty product is taken to be 1 .

We can write a simple C code snippet for this definition. (given in the solution)
