result = math.factorial(num)

# printing factorial
print("Factorial of ", num, " is = ", result)
```

Output

```    Factorial of  5  is =  120
```

```# python code to demonstrate an example
# of math module with "as" keyword example

# import statement with alias name
import math as m

# number
num = 5

# finding factorial
result = m.factorial(num)

# printing factorial
print("Factorial of ", num, " is = ", result)
