C Exercises: Print first 50 natural numbers

C Recursion : Exercise-1 with Solution

Write a program in C to print first 50 natural numbers using recursion.

Sample Solution:

C Code:

#include<stdio.h>
int  numPrint(int);
int main()
{
    int n = 1;
	printf("\n\n Recursion : print first 50 natural numbers :\n");
	printf("-------------------------------------------------\n"); 
	printf(" The natural numbers are :");
    numPrint(n);
    printf("\n\n");
    return 0;
}
int numPrint(int n)
{
    if(n<=50)
    {
         printf(" %d ",n);
         numPrint(n+1);
    }
}

Sample Output:

Recursion : print first 50 natural numbers :
