# What is the recursive formula?

For a sequence a1, a2, a3, . . . , an, . . . a recursive formula is a formula that requires the computation of all previous terms in order to find the value of an . Note: Recursion is an example of an iterative procedure. See also. Explicit formula.

Moreover, what is the recursive method?

Recursion is a basic programming technique you can use in Java, in which a method calls itself to solve some problem. A method that uses this technique is recursive. Many programming problems can be solved only by recursion, and some problems that can be solved by other techniques are better solved by recursion.

What is recursion in code?

Recursion is a tool a programmer can use to invoke a function call on itself. Fibonacci sequence is the textbook example of how recursion is used. Most recursive code if not all can be expressed as iterative function, but its usually messy.

What is the use of recursion?

People use recursion only when it is very complex to write iterative code. For example, tree traversal techniques like preorder, postorder can be made both iterative and recursive. But usually we use recursive because of its simplicity.
