I had a doubt if the problem [KFIB][1] can be solved by recursion. If so, could someone explain to me with an appropriate solution?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, It is Quite Simple to solve the problem using recursion.

You just have to follow the following recurrence relation:

```
f(n) = 1 , if(n less than or equal to k)
f(n) = k , if(n is equal to k + 1)
f(n) = 2*f(n - 1) - f(i - k - 1) , otherwise
```

In addition you have to use some memoization so that you do not end up with infinite recurrences.

You can refer to this code here for more details.
