As n! Can also be expressed as n×(n-1)! So if we take 1!=1 (1-1)! it simplifies to 1!=1×0! Therefore1=0! there are more ways to prove that as well... · 1 year, 10 months ago

Yeah it kind of goes along with the pattern of factorials, so it's nice to have it defined as 1. I think they mentioned that in this vid too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mfk_L4Nx2ZI · 1 year, 9 months ago
