Mai I ask for help in understanding recursion

I can not understand recursion it seems completely different than anything before


Hey there! I highly recommend checking out the “Get Help” button that offers some hints.

Here’s another article I found through there.

In short, with recursion, we’re defining a function that calls itself. In order to prevent this from being done infinitely, we define a circumstance or “base case” where that inner calling stops.

Hope this helps!


Hi @hamzanouh2689314

Did you figured out? I am sending you a couple of links you could read to get a better understanding of it, I hope:

Its like a family tree: first it resolves the last case with the last possible parameter. The value returned for last case is used to resolve the case before that, and so on, going up, till first case. Tricky english, sorry, lol
Good luck

till now I cannot grasp and write it
