 # 5!!

## Enter Multifactorial

Calculate the multifactorial 5!!
We have 2 exclamation symbols (!)
Start at 5
Iterate backwards in steps of 2
Stop when we hit 1 or below

## Term 2

Subtract -1 x 2 = -2 to get n(n - -2)
(n - -2) → 5 - -2 = 3
Our factorial term is:
5(3)

## Term 3

Subtract -1 x 2 = -2 to get n(n - -2)(n - -2)
(n - -2) → 5 - -2 = 1
Our factorial term is:
5(3)(1)

5!! = n(n - -2)(n - -2)...
5!! = 5(3)(1)  5!! = 15
