Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\Gamma (\alpha)=\int\limits_{0}^{\infty}x^{\alpha1}e^{x}dx\] I understand how to get to the relationship \[\Gamma (\alpha)=(\alpha1)\Gamma (\alpha1)\] for any alpha >1 But I'm not sure how t get to :\[\Gamma (n)=(n1)!\] for n is a positive integer
