Basic Algorithm Scripting - Factorialize a Number

Tell us what’s happening:
This is how I solved the challenge Factorialize a Number. It doesn’t match any of the 4 solutions when I go in and check them on “Get A Hint”. Is this a bad way of doing it or are there just many solutions to this problem?

Your code so far

function factorialize(num) {
  let result = 1;
  for(let i = num; i > 0; i--) {
    result *= num;
  return result;

It isn’t wrong, its just a little bit odd. Usually, loops don’t decrement unless they really need to.

Also, you aren’t using i inside of your loop body, which is strange.
