Gamma Function

  1. Mar 15, 2010 #1
    Hi, I need to calculate [tex]\Gamma(7/3)[/tex]/[tex]\Gamma(1/3)[/tex]
    is there some trick to doing this type of problem? I'm finding it really hard to do from first principles.
    Any help would be great, thanks!

    Consider the property of the gamma function:

    [tex]\Gamma(z + 1) = z\Gamma(z)[/tex]
