For each of the calls to the following recursive function below, indicate what value is returned:

int recursionMystery5(int a, int b) {
    if (a < 10 || b < 10) {
        return a + b;
    } else if (a > b) {
        int x = recursionMystery5(a / 2, b / 2);
        int y = recursionMystery5(b, a - b);
        return x + y;
    } else {
        return recursionMystery5(a, b / 2);
recursionMystery5(11, 18)
recursionMystery5(26, 12)
recursionMystery5(32, 48)
