# Doing some coding

Today, I tried to write code that involves actual problem solving

I wrote a method that calculates the factorial of a number, here’s how I did it :

public static double calculate(int number){ if (number > 0){ int result = 1; for(int i = 1; i <= number; i++){ result *= i; } return result; } else if(number == 0) { return 0; } else { String message = "Cannot calculate factorial for a negative integer"; throw new IllegalArgumentException(message); } }

Here, I used a loop to calculate the factorial if the number supplied to the method is bigger than zero.

And if it was zero, it should return zero.

If it’s a negative number, it should throw an Exception, I chose IllegalArgumentException here.

I also wrote another method to calculate Fibonacci numbers, here’s the code :

public static int getNumber(int number){ int[] sequence = new int[number]; sequence[0] = 0; sequence[1] = 1; for(int i = 2; i < sequence.length; i++){ sequence[i] = sequence[i-1] + sequence[i-2]; } return sequence[sequence.length - 1]; }

Here, I used an array to keep track of the numbers calculated, and used indices to calculate more numbers with the help of a for loop.
