when i use this code i get answer that is always a raised to b+1.
why is that? when i put else statement in my power function i get the right answer? pls explain

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;
int power(int a,int b)
if (b>0)
return (a*power(a,(b-1)));


int main()
{int a,b;
cout<<"for a raised to b";


Doesn't your compiler complain?

If (b>0) isn't true ... then your function doesn't return anything.
