This is an example of recursion: a function that calls itself:

using System;

public class Program
static int Additional(int a)
if( a <= 1 )
return 1;
return a + Additional(a - 2);

static int Main()
Console.WriteLine("Additional: {0}\n", Additional(5));
Console.WriteLine("Additional: {0}\n", Additional(11));
Console.WriteLine("Additional: {0}\n", Additional(28));
Console.WriteLine("Additional: {0}\n", Additional(55));
return 0;

This would produce:

Additional: 9

Additional: 36

Additional: 211

Additional: 784
