real world solutions for a fractional permutation

This type of solution comes up in algebra theory for symmetric type groups:
Solve[(4+q)!-40==0,q]
Solve[Gamma[5+q]-40==0,q]
The Mathematica output refuses to give a number.
I worked at it a little.
Factorial:
(4+q)!=40
gives:
0.331291631797621
Gamma[5+q]=40
0.3312924244499
They stop agreeing at the 6th place in Mathematica.
I don't have a good program for either of them and essentually did them 
by hand
one digit at a time.

Something is wrong with how I'm calculating them for sure.
