can't find the factorial operator

P: n/a

I can't seem to find the factorial operator. It's not in the math namespace,
either. Is factorial not built in to the Framework?

No, there isn't. However, n! can be easily determined...

I was worried that if I did it myself it woudn't have the same peformance as
any built-in function.

Little did I know it wouldn't matter in the slightest. The speed of a modern
computer executing purely mathematical programs just floored me.
