Сompare the resulting code of a factorial procedure

Consider the following definition of a factorial procedure, which is slightly different from the one given above:

(define (factorial-alt n)
  (if (= n 1)
      (* n (factorial-alt (- n 1)))))

Compile this procedure and compare the resulting code with that produced for factorial . Explain any differences you find. Does either program execute more efficiently than the other?
