The following Java coding solution is the first in a series of solutions for common recursion programming problems. It is perhaps not the best solution, and certainly not the only solution. If you’ve got a better idea, please share. Problem: The Fibonacci series: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, has as its first 2 values, 0 and 1; each successive v  .... Read More

The following Java coding solution is the first in a series of solutions for common recursion programming problems. It is perhaps not the best solution, and certainly not the only solution. If you've got a better idea, please share. Problem: Write a method called fact that recursively calculates the factorial value of its single int parameter. The value returned by fact is a long.   .... Read More
