Write a program which employs Recursion?

include    int factorial(int n){   if(n 0 || n 1)   return 1;   return n*factorial(n-1);   }    int main(int argc, char *argv[]){

Write a example of recursion?

Following function calculates factorial of a number using recursion.   unsigned int factorial(unsigned int a) { if (a == 1) return 1; else { a *= factorial(a-1)

How do you do recursive pattern rule?

a recursive pattern is when you always use the next term in the pattern... for example   4,(x2+1) 9,(x2+1) 19,(x2+1) 39,(x2+1) 79,(x2+1) 159

Can a recursive formula produce an arithmetic or geometric sequence?

arithmetic sequence * * * * * A recursive formula can produce arithmetic, geometric or other sequences. For example, for n = 1, 2, 3, ...: u0 = 2, un = un-1 + 5 is an arithmet

What is a recursive rule in math?

It is a term for sequences in which a finite number of terms are defined explicitly and then all subsequent terms are defined by the preceding terms. The best known example i

How do you write recursive algorithm?

Any algorithm, that refers to itself is recursive. Trivial example: gcd (a, b) := a if b=0 b if a=0 gcd (a mod b, b) if a>=b gcd (b mod a, a) if a<b

How is the recursive form of a sequence sometimes more useful than the closed form where a rule is found to find any term based on its position in the sequence?

"The recursive form is very useful when there aren't too many terms  in the sequence. For instance, it would be fairly easy to find the  5th term of a sequence recursively,

Which is the recursive formula for the nth term in a geometric sequence?

You need to know two numbers to completely describe the geometric sequence: the starting number, and the ratio between each number and the previous one. When you use recursi
