Recursive Function


A function that can call itself is called recursive function. A good example is to calculate the factorial of a number. The factorial of the f number is equal to the factorial of (f-1) multiplied by f.
>>> def fact(f):
            if f==1:
                        return 1
            else:
                        return fact(f-1) *f
           
>>> fact(3)
6
>>>
