What does “n := factorial(4)” mean, specifically, (4)

It’s just a function call. you pass 4 as argument to factorial function.

See the tour about functions.

This was helpful, One time I get lost is whenever the tour compares Go to C, because I know nothing about C. What I am beginning to do is skip over all the information about what C does and get back to what Go does

f func(func(int,int) int, int) int

Things like this ALMOST totally lose me

But i am determined

I realize this is necessary for most people studying Go so I’m not complaining, just noting

Thanks for directing me

Does the 4 here: n := factorial(4)
refer to the 4 in (4 * 3 * 2 * 1)?

Or is it a sepaate 4?
