Alternatively, we may speak of the declarations that are visible at the point of a variable reference, meaning those that contain the variable reference within their scope. The declaration of a variable v has a scope that includes all references to v that occur free in the region associated with the declaration. Those references to v that occur bound in the region associated with its declaration are shadowed by inner declarations. ). The scope of the formal parameter x in the fourth line is the lambda expression's body, (+ x 1).

It is now a simple matter to solve our original problem (define vector-sum (lambda (von) (partial-vector-sum von (vector-length von)))) Observe that von does not change. We can take advantage of this by rewriting the program using letrec: (define vector-sum (lambda (von) (letrec ((partialsum (lambda (n) (if (zero? 14 [ is correct.
