 # 8!!

## Enter Multifactorial

Calculate the multifactorial 8!!
We have 2 exclamation symbols (!)
Start at 8
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) → 8 - -2 = 6
Our factorial term is:
8(6)

## Term 3

Subtract -1 x 2 = -2 to get n(n - -2)(n - -2)
(n - -2) → 8 - -2 = 4
Our factorial term is:
8(6)(4)

## Term 4

Subtract -1 x 2 = -2 to get n(n - -2)(n - -2)(n - -2)
(n - -2) → 8 - -2 = 2
Our factorial term is:
8(6)(4)(2)

8!! = n(n - -2)(n - -2)(n - -2)...
8!! = 8(6)(4)(2)  8!! = 384
