Your attempt is close. You need to change line 3. Also line 4 can be reduced to simply if(n % 10 == 7) return 1 + count7(n/10) Line 3 is going to be your base case. When should you stop in ALL cases? For example in you base case if n = 71, then (71 % 10 != 7) == true, hence your function stops and returns 0.
Base cases is a case where the input n is the minimal number possible for the recursion to work. So what range of value passed in should the function automatically just stop?
it seems like my code stop working whenever the next number is not 7...
I am thinking that the if statement should stop when I get to the last number and it is not equal to 7
but I am failing to make it work.
i tried if(n/10 == 0 && n != 7) return 0;
