ABSTRACT
The article presents a mathematical problem which illustrates the use of Stirling's Formula and on approximations for the double factorial. It is stated that the formula is known for its good approximation. The author featured several tables which tabulate the Stirling's formula in given equations. In addition, a calculation of double factor with asymptotic relative errors is also presented.

    We prove that the weighted error of approximation by the Szász-Mirakyan-type operator introduced in [1] is equivalent to the modulus of smoothness of the function. This result is analogous to previous results for Bernstein-type operators obtained by Ditzian-Ivanov and Szabados.
