Factorial !:help!


#1

def factorial(x):
    count=x
    while count>1:
        total=x*(x-1)
        count-=1
    return total
print factorial(3)

#2

well, total is defined in the loop, so it will simply be assigned a new value (overwriting the previous value), not adding the value total, so total is never a true total

define total outside the loop so you can add values to it so you end up with the factorial
