Assume the availability of a function called printStars. The function receives an int argument. If the argument is positive, the function prints (to standard output) the given number of asterisks. Thus, if the printStars(8) is called, ******** (8 asterisks) will be printed. Assume further that the variable starCount has been declared and initialized to a positive integer. Write some code that prints starCount asterisks to standard output by: first printing a single asterisk (and no other characters) then calls printStars to print the remaining asterisks.

CHALLENGE:

Assume the availability of a function called printStars. The function receives an int argument. If the argument is positive, the function prints (to standard output) the given number of asterisks. Thus, if the printStars(8) is called, ******** (8 asterisks) will be printed. Assume further that the variable starCount has been declared and initialized to a positive integer. Write some code that prints starCount asterisks to standard output by: first printing a single asterisk (and no other characters) then calls printStars to print the remaining asterisks.

SOLUTION:


if(starCount>0){
  cout << "*";
  printStars(starCount-1);
}
