Recursive Procedure: A recursive procedure is a method or a function that calls itself over and over again as long as it satisfies the recursive conditionm[1][2]. Recursive procedures are easier to design as they more closely reflect the modeling technique and mathematical properties. Interestingly, examples of recursive are present in nature. Fractals and flower petal patterns are two such examples.

The Fibonacci sequence is a popular example of recursion[3]:
[base cases]
Fib(0) is 1
Fib(1) is 1
For all integers n > 1: Fib(n) is (Fib(n-1) + Fib(n-2)) [recursive definition]

We can write ...
