Calculate x and n, C can be any real numbers in below equation


[imath]x∙(x-1)∙(x-2)….…..(x-n)=C[/imath]

The equation doesn't make any sense if x and n can be any real numbers. Shouldn't at least n be restricted to non-negative integers? And if you intend the LHS to be xPn, that would normally require both x and n to be non-negative integers (and therefore C also).

Where does this problem come from? Does the context involve some sort of extension of these concepts to non-integers?
