F# functions

F# is a functional programming language. It contains rich set of built-in functions. It allows us to create user-defined functions also.

You can define function by using let keyword, and recursive function by using let rec keyword combination.

let: It is a keyword which is used to define function.

function-name: Function-name is a valid function name that represents the function.

parameter-list: Parameter-list represents list of parameter in the function.
