Bellow is the simple logic for computing factorial

include< iostream>

include< conio.h>

using namespace std;

void main()

{

int i,f=1,n;

``````scanf("%d",&n);
``````

for(i=1;i<=n;i++)

{

``````f*=i;
``````

}

printf("%d\n",f);

getch();

}

Avoid using conio.h header file and associated functions that are getch() and clrscr().

Also this logic fails for computing factorial of 100 as factorial(100) is

Here a nice explanation for how to calculate factorial of a large number in C/C++ is given, read and try to implement by yourself. Tutorial is really interesting
