    It was of course not meant to be a professional dissertation, but just a means of explaining how I got to the final outcome ...

    maybe he/she expected \(a_1=2, a_2=3, a_n=a_{n-1}a_{n-2}\)

    she even said my setup did not match the 2,3,6 ... which leads me to believe that she either used the wrong expression, or was trying to integrate this along successive intervals ([0,1],[1,2],[2,3]) instead of cumulative intervals ([0,1],[0,2],[0,3]).

    by the very design of it, it matches. the area from 0 to 1 is 2 the area from 1 to 2 is 1 , 2+1 = 3 the area from 2 to 3 is 3 , 2+1+3 = 6

    i did learn how to integrate an absolute value tho :) I had gotten it to\[\int |x|dx=\frac{x^2}{2}+C\]but I couldnt get past that and had to look it up; i was thiiissss close :)\[\int |x|dx=\frac{x|x|}{2}+C\]

    lol, I also figured out the mystery behind continued fractions, at least for rational values \[\frac{9}{49}=\frac{1}{49/9}\] \[\frac{1}{49/9}=\cfrac{1}{5+\cfrac{4}{9}}=\cfrac{1}{5+\cfrac{1}{9/4}}...\]

    I devised a way to get an equation with a curve in it too; if we construct the absolute values to match the slopes we want; then integrating it produces the desired graph:|dw:1346851055201:dw|
