SPOJ 24. Small factorials (FCTRL2) with F#

Problem Definition

You are asked to calculate factorials of some small positive integers.


An integer t, 1<=t<=100, denoting the number of testcases, followed by t lines, each containing a single integer n, 1<=n<=100.


For each integer n given at input, display a line with the value of n!

More details about the problem is available here.
