# How to Solve the Tower of Hanoi Problem Using a Recursive Algorithm in Python?

The Tower of Hanoi problem is often solved using a recursive algorithm, which is a natural way to express the problem. Here is an example of how to solve the Tower of Hanoi problem using a recursive algorithm in Python:

``````def tower_of_hanoi(n, source, dest, temp):
if n == 1:
print("Move disk 1 from source", source, "to destination", dest)
return
tower_of_hanoi(n-1, source, temp, dest)
print("Move disk", n, "from source", source, "to destination", dest)
tower_of_hanoi(n-1, temp, dest, source)``````

Here, `n` represents the number of disks, `source` represents the starting peg, `dest` represents the destination peg, and `temp` represents the temporary buffer peg.

The base case of the recursion is when `n` is equal to 1. In this case, we simply move the top disk from the `source` peg to the `dest` peg and return.

If `n` is greater than 1, we first recursively move the top `n-1` disks from the `source` peg to the `temp` peg, using the `dest` peg as a temporary buffer. Then, we move the `n`-th disk from the `source` peg to the `dest` peg. Finally, we recursively move the `n-1` disks from the `temp` peg to the `dest` peg, using the `source` peg as a temporary buffer.

To use this function, simply call `tower_of_hanoi(n, source, dest, temp)` with the appropriate values for `n`, `source`, `dest`, and `temp`. The function will print out a sequence of moves that will solve the Tower of Hanoi problem for the given number of disks.
