Common questions about the FACT Formula include:

- What is the FACT formula?
- How does the FACT formula work?
- What do the parameters of the FACT formula mean?

The FACT formula can be

**used to quickly calculate a factorial**, which is the product of all positive integers from 1 to a given number. For example, FACT(6) will return 720, the product of all positive integers from 1 to 6.

The FACT formula can be

**commonly mistyped**by substituting the "CT" for "EC" or vice versa, resulting in an invalid formula.

**Some common ways the FACT formula is used inappropriately**include using the formula on a negative number, using it to calculate something other than a factorial, or using it for a problem that could be resolved much more efficiently using another approach.

**Common pitfalls**when using the FACT formula include using it with a large number that returns an incorrect value (due to the limitations of Google Sheets’ number of significant digits), entering a non-numeric value, or not typing a number as the parameter.

**Common mistakes**when using the FACT Formula include using parentheses instead of delimiters (commas) or omitting the formula altogether.

**Common misconceptions**people might have with the FACT Formula include thinking it can be used to calculate the square root of a number, or that it takes multiple parameters.
