For each call to the following recursive function, write the output that would be produced, as it would appear on the console.

void recursionMysteryComma(int x, int y) {
    if (y == 1) {
        cout << x;
    } else {
        cout << (x * y) << ", ";
        recursionMysteryComma(x, y - 1);
        cout << ", " << (x * y);
recursionMysteryComma(4, 1);
recursionMysteryComma(4, 2);
recursionMysteryComma(8, 2);
recursionMysteryComma(4, 3);
recursionMysteryComma(3, 4);
