Hi Everyone and welcome to the second LabVIEW Digest Challenge! We had some excellent responses from the first challenge so I hope you’re all ready for another! You can win a free certification exam of your choice!

The Challenge – Reverse Factorials:
Everyone is probably familiar with a factorial. 5 factorial is:
5! -> 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120
For this challenge reverse it! Write LabVIEW code that tells us if our input number is a factorial or not.
If the number is a factorial it should return 'x!' where x is the factorial number.
E.g. 120 is 5 factorial, return '5!'
If the number is not a factorial it should return 'NONE'
The code should handle input numbers up to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 – consider your data types!
Close date: Monday 17th July
Please note the competition is only open to LabVIEW users in Europe, Middle East, India and Africa.
We're still just getting the challenge ready at the moment. We will time the release of the challenge with our LabVIEW Digest Newsletter so keep an eye out for that.
Schedule towards the end of June.
