Your 0 is FOREVER OUT! Try 0 and you will see that C!=–1, which is a nonsense! ANY factorial is always more than or equal to ONE.

You, guys, do not even give yourselves a job to check each root—but doing so is a REAL MUST while dealing with moduls. Moreover, you continue in the same way after my many long notations! Shame on you. I will ask Bogdan to downgrade your titles.

Post your approaches here. Let us locate your weak skills.

The only root is 1

That is the only place where the two graphs intersect.

Another way is classical - find mod zeroes, intersect lines, and open moduls:

____________0___________________1________________

–C–1+C=C!..........C–1+C=C!.....................C–C+1=C!
C1=–1..................2C–1=C! .......................C1=1
no solution............factorials are for ............C=0 – not in the interval
............................integers of which............C=1 OK
............................there are 0 and 1
............................0 is out, 1 is OK

Finally, after checking, we see that C=1.
