    A(n) = A(n-1) + A(n-2) where a1 = 1 and a2 = 1 ?

    N th term is given by the formulae A(n)=A(n+1)+A(n+2) N=(n+1)+(n+2)

    \[F_n-F_{n-1}-F_{n-2}=0 \ \ \ n\ge2\] setting up characterestic equation gives\[\lambda^2-\lambda-1=0\]wchich gives\[\phi_1=\frac{1+\sqrt{5}}{2}\]\[\phi_2=\frac{1-\sqrt{5}}{2}\]and so\[F_n=A\phi_1^n+B\phi_2^n\]and all u need is finding A and B using the values of \(F_0\) and \(F_1\)
