Problem Solution:

In this program, we will read a number and power from the user and calculate the power of the number using recursive function and return the result.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to calculate the power of a given number using recursion is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

```# Ruby program to calculate the
# power of given number using recursion

def CalculatePower(num, power)
result = 1;
if power > 0
result = num * (CalculatePower(num, power-1));
end
return result;
end

print "Enter number: ";
number = gets.chomp.to_i;

print "Enter power: ";
power = gets.chomp.to_i;

result = CalculatePower(number, power);
print "result: ",result;
```

Output:

```Enter number: 2
Enter power: 3
result: 8
```

Explanation:

In the above program, we read a number and power from the user and called the created recursive function CalculatePower() function and got the result. Then we printed the result.
