Submitted by Nidhi, on December 27, 2021

Problem Solution:

In this program, we will read two integer numbers from the user and calculate the product of input numbers using recursion.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to calculate the product of two given numbers using recursion is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

```# Ruby program to calculate the product
# of two given numbers using recursion

def calculateProduct(a, b)
if a < b
return calculateProduct(b, a);
elsif b != 0
return (a + calculateProduct(a, b - 1));
else
return 0;
end
end

print "Enter number1: ";
number1 = gets.chomp.to_i;

print "Enter number2: ";
number2 = gets.chomp.to_i;

result = calculateProduct(number1, number2);

print "Product is: ",result;
```

Output:

```Enter number1: 5
Enter number2: 3
Product is: 15
```

Explanation:

In the above program, we read two integer numbers from the user. Then we calculated the product of input numbers using recursive function calculateProduct(). Then we printed the result.
