 Description  
 Recursive:  A type of series in which numbers originate from terms in the series.
The Fibonacci series is a recursive pattern. The series: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13 is built up of terms which are the sum of the two previous numbers. For instance, the 5th term 5 is the sum of the 3rd and 4th terms (2+3=5).
