Respond to the disussion below about the difference between recursion and iteration with 150 words or more.

Recursion and iteration are similar they execute sets of instructions  repeatedly. However, the main difference is that the recursion is when a  statement in a function calls itself repeatedly. Iteration is a loop  that repeatedly executes until the condition is not met, or becomes  false. 

Recursion uses the selection structure. The selection structure is a  programming feature that performs a different process depending on  whether a boolean condition is true or false. They use relational  operators to test if the conditions are true or false.

Recursion terminates when the base case is recognized; The base case  n=1. It is slower than iteration and used more memory than iteration.  The code is smaller using recursion.
